I am on day 2 of my night photography theme and I thought I was going to miss my chance to go out tonight all together because we had one serious storm.
I had planned to go to the bridge and take some long exposures of the cars going by but that will have to wait until later this week because the walking path was closed. Instead we drove around downtown Louisville looking for something interesting to shoot. I love taking photographs right after it rains because everything looks so beautiful. The lights reflect off of every surface and it seems like everywhere you turn there is a photograph waiting to happen.
We drove past this beautiful building and I yelled “ACK, I want to shoot that!” After we got out of the car I noticed a fountain across the street from the building and I thought that would be an interesting forefront to add to the shot. I set up my tripod, put the camera on manual and started with the ISO set at 400. I kept the aperture at F8 and then adjusted the shutter speed until I got the lighting that I wanted. I believe I have said before that downtown Louisville looks like it is bathed in yellow at nighttime and this is no exception but I think it turned out quite lovely.
