Night Photography

Smasing Magazine has a great little quote and tons of links to websites with great samples of night photography, look at their website for more.

Smashing magazine describes night photography as thus...
"Low light levels make night photography a challenging yet rewarding subject. The best results require specialized equipment, like SLR cameras, tripods, cable releases and flashguns. After sunset, the everyday world is magically transformed, and city buildings, fireworks, thunderstorms and the northern lights all become popular subjects."
I'm working on my night photography with my Canon Rebel Xsi DSLR, but it's just not the same. Maybe I need to upgrade, but I found the results not as good as when I had more control with film and a cable release.

Here are some of my older shots...

Church at Night, Reseda, CA - 2003
Moon Rise at Zuma Beach, CA - 2004
Santa Monica Pier, Ca - 2009
Downtown Los Angeles @ Night - 2003

More recent with the digital camera...2012
