The weekend of 25th and 26th of march I did some street photography at night in our village.
My focus was on searching some interesting locations to photograph and to test out the Fujifilm 33mm f1.4 lens using wide open in low light conditions.
The first night I shot al the images handheld “wide open”. The second night I revisited some locations to create images with a smaller F-stop with the use of the tripod (long exposure photographs).
This lens does bloom a bit shot wide open at night. It gives some “cinematic look” to the highlights.
The following day it had rained a lot. This gave also some extra effect to the highlights at night.
As always photography can be done everywhere. Most important is to be out and to enjoy the process of photography.
Possibly taking photographs of our village at night can be an idea for a long term project. When the weather and or lighting conditions are to bad to do woodland photography, documenting the streets of our village at night can be an interesting alternative.
In this post I have included some images of the first day. The long exposure images will be published in a following post.
I hope you like the images.
