First try

Previous / Next

This is a three year old slide showing the black-smiths house. As you can see, I photographed it late at night, before it got too dark. I guess I just put everything on auto and waited for the shutter to close. Lately, I`ve become more daring, and guesstimate and experiment a lot more. I probably took two or three exposures at almost the same angle. Now, I burn through two or three rolls of film, because I know by experience that the best shot is probably nr. 36 or 37.
I also move a lot more, and sometimes the photograph is not in front of the camera, but behind my back. Last time I went to photograph this house, I ended up by photographing the fence you see in the foreground.

I so love that fence ;-) Great colour in this ... I've never tried slide film but its on my list of things to try in the warmer months, that and more night photography .. this is very inspiring Alfred :)
Hi! Sorry I haven't commented in a long time! I need to catch up. But I wanted to say hi!
Ah, so this is the fence! One thing of night photography is that you never know what kind of light will be left at the end of the exposure. The passing car in this case made the magic.
I've been through several of your shots. Overall they are all warm and engaging. This, however, is my favorite.
