Notes on how to take night photos

With the coming forth of the newer cameras able to take photos in extreme darkness, I wanted you to go with me through this video and show you what to watch out for in taking photos at night. So, watch out for the lighting, and still look for good photos to take pictures of.

Please watch the video below:

Here are the actual results from tonight’s low light shooting:

This is the first photo taken tonight at 9pm, using just my new cell phone (DSLR would give you the same results if shot at 3200ISO). Amazing that I could still get this photo, no flash, and get this fence-line photo. Notice the deep yellow colors to this photo. This is the actual photo taken before Post-Production.
The same photo as above, but, most of the yellow color taken out. Interesting to see the blues in the sky come out. Made this for a more pleasing photo.
Photo number 2 taken of the broken fence. Still notice the yellowish color to the photo before post-production.
Same as the photo above, but with the yellow taken out of the photo, to make it look more pleasing. Once again, look at the blues in the sky come out.
This photo was purposely taken with the street lights in it. If we make this photo (below) look like daylight, then you would never know that this was taken at night. It’s often a good idea when taking your night photos, to include the lighting in the photo.
I love how this photo turned out after post-production. Blue sky, and the light is now white (Mostly). A winning photo you think?
You will recall our final photo was of flowers in the natural street light. Do you like this, Or below ?
These are yellow flowers. I take the yellow produced from the street light, and make it more daylight, and I get the green grass, and the blue tint to the sidewalk was surprising, but nice. What do you think?

With what you see in the results of our night time shooting, what do you think? Your comments are welcome and hope you enjoyed this video presentation.
