P52-9-31 Light: Night
Posted By: Tsukiouji, 10-25-2020, 03:33 PM

Unsheath your tripods, gentlemen!

the concept is Night. Not a thing most of us do on a daily basis
but a thing most of us try every now and then. I want to see photos made between
dusk and dawn.... (the dark period...)
Tips and references:
The Ultimate Guide to Night Photography by Jim Hamel

Photos for the Week #31 competition are to be taken between Oct 26, 2020 and Nov 1, 2020.

1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-9 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed.
Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot, Medium Format, et cetera. But no phones, please.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

I actually went out to find a neon sign to shoot tonight, so I have this one. I may replace it though if I get the chance. Neon is interesting to shoot because the different gases used (they are not all actually neon) to get different colors have very different color temperatures, so it can be hard to get a balance. Underexposing seems to help it sometimes, but then of course throwing those LED signs in adds another element.

Seeing as there are just two of us you get to pick the winner of the next competition Tom. We have very few neon signs in our area except for the occasional OPEN. Nice find.
