Night Photography at Kiawah Island 2009

This is my second night shoot on the beach at Kiawah Island, SC. I learned some good lessons from my first attempt and applied them this time around. Primarily, I paid closer attention to my focus this time and it made all the difference.

All of these images are created using a technique called “light painting” where you leave the camera shutter open while you “paint” in the air with a flashlight. It’s a very inexact process to say the least and the results can be very unpredictable.

Lessons learned on this shoot:
1) Place your camera bag outside well before shooting to avoid lens fogging.
2) Always keep your lenses clean to avoid lens flare.
