With Christmas just a couple of days away, what could be more proper than a night of merry Irish people music and a Fairytale of New York?
The Pogues yesterday drew out the yuletide mounted force for their yearly multi-day unique festival at Brixton Academy, also made woodwind tunes shaded a set amazingly delegated by crude accordion performances.
In spite of grave shades and a dark cowhide coat, Shane McGowan and his eight-piece band earned two reprises, and the gathering of people both applauded and sang along to Dirty Old Town. Late in front of an audience, McGowan - toothless yet not tuneless – threw together the state of mind with his dark voice and sure.
As the band propelled into their renowned Christmas single, which is presently number eight the diagrams, falling snow secured the stage and the group wished everybody a Happy Christmas.T-shirts with the trademark "Loan me 10 pounds and I'll get you a drink" splendidly summed up the night of Celtic punk, both in front of an audience and all around the scene.
Tips: Evening photography and night photography
Night Christmas also related to gifts and tradition. One of my cultures is taking a photo of my family. I love to go on the road in the evening christmas with my lovely family. The beginning of the evening, when the sun is just below, is my favorite time to photograph. The lights on the buildings are on. The air slowly discolors to blue and to black. The colors are intense.
This blog I reveal the wonderful world of evening photography to discover. Shoot ' asterisks ' around lamps, the light streaks of cars and the magic of the Blue Hour. A complete reference work with user settings for night photography.
The secret to night photography: Use the Blue Hour
The hour for the sun and the hour after the sunset is also called the Blue Hour. During the Blue Hour, the air often has an intense blue color. The contrast between the sky and buildings is not too big, which produces magical pictures. Especially when clouds provide other structure in the atmosphere.
In practice, this blue hour is sometimes fifteen minutes, sometimes more than an hour. This depends on where you are and how fast it gets dark. Shooting during the blue hour requires some planning. An app like ' BlueHourApp ' (for iOs) can help.
Supplies for night photography
The best pictures in the dark are made with a camera that you can set manually. This can be an SLR or a system camera, but with a good compact camera, you also get an end.
A camera that only has an auto mode is not useful for night photography. In this blog, you will read more about cameras traveling.
Photos with long shutter speeds are preferably from a tripod. A Gorillapod is a beautiful and light tripod for traveling. This flexible tripod is easy to fit in your bag. You clamp it to a bridge railing or lantern pole if you want to photograph on a trip. ISO is also important when you take a photos in the dark situations.
Tip: Don't have a tripod? Then look for a wall to set up the camera. With a bag of rice or your scarf or sweater, you stabilize the camera at the right angle.
The remote control is handy when taking pictures with a long shutter speed like night photography. The camera can vibrate slightly when you press a button, here you have no trouble with a tripod. Remote control for Canon or Nikon takes up almost no spot in your camera bag and costs only 10-15 euro.
Tip: Don't have a remote control with you? Then use the self-timer of the camera. This way you prevent your camera from moving when pressing the shutter release button.
Do you have a UV filter or a polarizing filter on your lens during the day? Get it from there in the evening. A screen can cause disturbing reflections. Let your lens hood just sit there, this prevents lens flare by (street) lighting.
What is best camera for night photography?
I have Canon EOS 500D and this my best camera for a night. Motion blur it may be quite obvious, but the first thing you notice is the decrease in light. The camera's sensor can be made more sensitive to light by increasing the ISO value. You can also shoot with large lens openings, so more light reaches the sensor. But in the end, you will have to work with slower shutter speeds to get a proper exposure.
The problem of slower shutter speeds is motion blur due to camera shake. When you hold the camera in hand, you can never keep it completely silent. With slower shutter speeds, the degree of camera shake is not increased, but the probability of this will lead to motion blur. A longer focal length also increases the chance of motion blur, so a tip for night photography is to use an object with short focal length; 18 mm or 24 mm is suitable for this purpose.
