I love shooting pictures at night. Something about the pools of light and shadows that add drama to a scene. Here’s a really good example. Shot in the daytime, with even lighting, I don’t think the photo will look nearly as compelling. Shadows add mystery. Glowing lights can be dramatic.

With modern cameras with image stabilization, it’s not very hard to shoot in dark places, especially with some borrowed light from the environment. Here, I was able to shoot at the highest quality, ISO 125, using a 1/6 of a second shutter speed.

I often shoot the Canon G7X Mark II at its widest, at a 24mm equivalent. And recently, I’ve made Cinematics, my extra wide 16×9 format images. But here, I’m zoomed in, close to a classic 35mm street photography focal length. The Cinematics trick only works when I’m shooting wide and works best at its widest.
