Portsmouth At Night (Fri) by Kathy

The Beautiful Blue Hour! I was very happy to accomplish my goals during “Portsmouth at Night” workshop. Bob and Don’s instructions during this workshop helped me succeed in this endeavor: capturing sharp images of the boats docked at Portsmouth Harbor during the blue hour, shooting nice star burst lighting, and getting good reflections on smooth waters.

“Market Street at Night”. My other goal was to be able to take a B&W night image of Portsmouth Market Street. Again,  I learned the technique of long exposures, suggestions for pp necessary to take a good  B&W for drama and interest.

Harbor Light Painting”  While directing my camera towards the Naval Station of the Portsmouth Harbor to shoot the lights and the small channel buoy, I tightened the ballhead on my tripod, but not enough….my camera suddenly tilted to the ground before I knew it! (gulp). After  repositioning my camera, tightening the ballhead, I looked at the LCD screen and saw a nice light painting from this near mishap. Thinking this now a great opportunity, I shot a couple more “movement” light paintings of the Naval Station and here is the one I like the best. You can see the ships and buildings silhouetted in the background, the dock/ships lights moving in the middle ground and the channel in the foreground.  This experience reinforced a couple lessons; Even though it was not my usual “style” of photographing subjects, it was fun and I enjoyed the time being creative. My other lesson…make sure the ball head is tight before letting go of the camera!
