Night Lights Workshop - Night One

On Friday, October 14th, I particiapted in the Night Lights Photo Workshop with Harry Nowell http://www.harrynowell.com/   The course is designed to teach new photo techniques at night and I must say, this the most fun I've ever had in a photo workshop.  Some of the techniques were so much to learn and develop.  Below are a few pictures I took last night using some of the new techniques.

Using a flashlight to highligh the building. I love the sky.  No editing involved.

This exercise we were painting the statue with light.  I highlighted the left side of the statue.  The tree and the sky really add to the picture.  Again, no editing.

In Ottawa, there is a company that does Ghost Walks.  They tell people the local Ottawa ghost stories.  Very rarely to you actually see one, but last night while photographing in The Courtyard downtown, my camera picked up a ghostly image.   That image is actually me using my external flash.  I think it's pretty cool.
