How to shoot those night shots

leave a comment »

One of our most common requests from architects and builders is the dusk shot. There’s a magical time when the ambient daylight and the artificial light from the scene are in balance and usually we’ve only got a few minutes to capture the shot.  For this reason we usually get our shots lined up and composed well in advance – then wait it out. Over the years we’ve discovered the the best time usually occurs somewhere between sunset and one hour past (or sunrise and one hour before.) Exactly when the right time will be will depend on your latitude, the time of year, weather, which direction you’re shooting and how much artificial light there is to contend with.  Also, it’s not uncommon for us to supplement the ambient light with some of our own. Landscape and structural lighting are designed for purposes other than photography, and as such occasionally need some help. We’ll also often use compositing techniques like layer masking and HDR to get our desired shot.
