Night Photography

Last night while I was out for a stroll, I took some photos using a high ISO and a very low shutter speed — mainly because I was handheld. Tonight I went out for another walk but this time I brought along a tripod and attempted some long exposure urban photos around my neighborhood. I’m not the first and only photographer to do this, in fact I was inspired by Oakland based photographer Todd Hido who specializes in some amazing night photography. He uses a Pentax 6×7 and shoots using Kodak Portra 400NC and his exposures usually range anywhere from 4 to 10 minutes! (I e-mailed him a couple of years ago inquiring). I was armed with a Nikon D1X, shooting digital and my exposures lasted 30 seconds.
