Everything looks different in the dark

Tuesday, 17 November 2015

Hey lovelies, this was supposed to be an outfit post but well... it. Won't. Stop. Raining. I mean I know I live in Wales but it's been about 3 weeks now and I haven't seen the sun for more than an hour. I planned to take my next outfit photos in the dark and well that didn't happen because of all this wind and rain! Hopefully I'll be able to get out in the next few days, maybe it'll calm down.
I have been waiting for a chance to use these photos though for a while. As part of my photography course for my final project I'm doing a night photography project and these are some of the test shots/experimentations I've done for it. Some have just been out and about in the dark whereas others were from a night photography ramble as part of Diffusion Festival. I mean I still need to take more pictures for my final project but wanted to share these too because I think they're pretty cool, they were all taken in the pitch black (well with the exception of street lights and such) and some of the colours are pretty cool.



 Also stuck in some sparkler pictures as a little bonus, they don't really fit with the rest of the photos but they're still night photography, same sort of skills.
I'm going for an eerie and surreal feel with some of my photos, I mean the surrealness fits better with ones I have for my final project; and they're more suburban. I'm just looking at the changes of things at night, especially now it's getting towards the darkest day and I spend a lot of my time walking around in the dark. Things become completely different when you're walking around in the dark, especially once they turn the street lights off (which is ridiculous). And then when you look at it on a long exposure through a camera the light and feel changes again and you see things you wouldn't be able to with your eyes, which is why I love this kind of photography, all for surrealness me.
I hope you liked these as much as I liked taking them. I'll have at least one other post up about this (with my final project work) but let me know what you think, how would you portray the change from light to dark?
Thanks for reading!
