Shooting in the Dark

September 18, 2012

You gotta' love those digital cameras and lenses that can shoot in the dark.

Well, actually, they all can. It's just that some are better at it than others. Mine's not tops, but decent. And I shoot without a tripod. That means whenever I wiggle the camera - which is often - I get blurry pictures. People who carry a tripod, people who have more patience than me, have fewer blurry photos.

Last evening I walked the Stone Arch Bridge area in downtown Minneapolis, along the Mississippi River. It's gorgeous at night. There are a couple photos below and here's a link to a few more. http://zumach.zenfolio.com/p785424610. The blue-lighted bridge is the new I-35W bridge (that replaced the one that collapsed in 2007).

The dark, dark shadows of the pictures have been brightened a little so you can see what's there. At night our eyes automatically make this adjustment. Digital pictures need a little help to see what your brain sees.
