I love night photography and in Yolo County, where I live, there are so many cool and wonderful places to explore. As a photographer I'm always trying to master light in my images - it's amazing what happens when there is a lack of light, or working with several different types of artificial light that you have no control over and what you start really seeing. Photographing at night also makes you slow down, way down, with your image making. Long exposures are the name of the game and in my book the longer the better. So most of the time your just standing around waiting...
My friend Manny and I have started going out once a month so I thought I'd start sharing my nighttime exploration.
