Night Photography

Shooting at night or just before dark can be rewarding when looking for a new perspective on an often photographed subject, the Seattle Center Pergola is a place I have been wanting to shoot for a while and I must admit I found it hard to find a position where I could come up with something original, I am sure its been shot from this perspective before, maybe not with this light and this type of cloud. The 16-35 f2.8 allowed me to get the wide feel I wanted for the image I had thought about before hand and the light and cloud worked pretty well to allow me to come away with a few images I like. See more at my web site.

  1. That's a great photo! I've been through the Seattle Center more times than I can count, and never thought to photograph these structures from an angle like that. The twilight lighting and clouds definitely help - but the angle is fantastic.

  2. Thanks Forrest, I like this one.
