When holidays are fast approaching, you surely have the best of lights at night. It’s one of the rare days that I do a night shoot. I usually go with daytime photo walks since it gives you a good natural light. Never in my thoughts that night shoot can give you all the good light, photo feels. In the contrary, night portraits are effective when there is much ambient light and nothing’s better than to mix it with texture adjustment producing the “grainy photos”
In light of November, I had a collab with Mariel and I just couldn’t let this post hang on in my backlogs. Not when december lights are trying to hyphenate. We tried mixing our aesthetics and I think that explains why the post has a pastel touch. It’s one of the creative shoots where I don’t wear a total black or white and where backgrounds are not just merely plain white walls. All the night walks made cityscapes startling with countless interesting and colorful light scheme, such as traffic lights, store signs, lamp posts, car lights and more. It’s astounding how drab day scenes suddenly turn enthralling at night. Looking forward to more of this night-theme shoots.
