Laugh Nocturnal? Let's see your night photos!

I love a good photograph taken at night and hope to become better at these. Stars! Star Trails! Glowing City Lights! Illuminated Campsites! Night Landscapes! Long Exposures! You name it!

If you are nocturnal, INSPIRE US!


I'll start.













Your Turn!

Trails

These were taken on bike trips, but didnt get the bike in there. Should have some more from Peru and Bolivia in a couple months.

Canon 40D EFS 17-55, F2.8, 30 sec exposures, ISO 800. Used Chris Shurs PS action to the combine the frames.

From Granview Campground, California.






From Rio Nexpa, Mexico





From Gonzaga Bay, BCN when I started my trip last September.

Sweet! Layering multiple exposures eh? I've got to try that, I've never had luck with those star trails!

Say, I recognise that fish scale

That is a world famous fish scale for sure. Star trails are really easy, just open up the lens, 30 sec, 800 ISO or 1600 ISO if you have a really clean chip like in the 5D, and let it run until the battery dies. I shoot at Medium Jpeg since its quicker to process.

Then download the PS action from Chris and follow his instructions.

After the stack is done I will stretch it and boost the saturation a bit in PS to bring out the dimmer stars, then maybe use a little noise ninja on the darker background if its needed. You can have all kinds of fun with lighting up objects with a light, campfire, etc, or start shooting as the moon is setting to light up the surrounding area etc.

How do you get the ghost effect? I've been trying to figure it out with no luck.

Movement in the scene during a long exposure.

I understand how to get a blur, but I wanna get that effect where it's just sort of an outline standing there.

Have the subject stand still for part of the exposure then walk directly way from the lens ( he needs to remain within the original shadow) for the remaining part.
