Today is the first day of Picture Style "Night" for the week.
All week you are going to be practicing night photography.
Night photography is tricky and may require patience and practicing with various settings. It is also helpful to shoot in RAW format and use a photo editing program. You may have to shoot with a higher ISO and not worry about the noise in the photo.
Today's word is "brighten"
For my subject photo, I took the shot during the blue hour and then adjusted my blacks and contrast to make the flames appear really bright. Taking the photo when it wasn't fully dark outside allowed more of the subject to be visible.
Don't worry about perfection this week. Be patient with yourself and just hone your skills.
Most importantly....Have fun!
