Cleveland after dark - The Dainty Squid

Cleveland after dark

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

One day last week Jeff and I spent the whole day out exploring. I guess that's not necessarily too out of the ordinary but it was definitely a great day. We started the morning with an abandoned train tunnel where I got my boots super dirty. I seriously had to scrub my toes for so long that night to get them clean, that was not regular old mud. Then we met up with a friend to check out some abandoned buildings. I took a ton of awesome photos that I can't wait to share later this week. After a break to cool down and let the sun go down we went back out to do a little bit a climbing and capture some of the beauty Cleveland has to offer after dark.
It was certainly a lot of fun. Climbing was an incredible experience. Seriously, so invigorating. Fingers crossed there is more of this in my future.

This is really some of my very first night time photography. I'm not too experienced at all. I have a pretty good idea of how to take photos in the dark but I definitely need a bit more practice. All in all, for my first night time photos, I'm pretty darn stoked with how these turned out. 

I also had Five Guys for the first time that day. Wow! But that's neither here nor there but probably worth mentioning because once again, wow. Haha.

  8. I've never tried night photography, I'm a little nervous to say the least. I tried some dark photos in an abandoned factory and they turned out alright, but night is another thing! Great photos though!

  15. I got into night sky photography through an astronomy class I took. I've been meaning to take some city night time shots, Toronto is SO beautiful after dark, and I've always loved how some architecture is lit up at night. Taking photos of the stars, you get this feeling like you're lifting back this film that lets you see through time, you know? It's so cool what you can conceal/reveal with night time photography!
