2 Things Challenge: Venture/Night

The 2 Things Challenge this week was Venture/Night.  The definition of venture includes some degree of risk.  

A couple of years ago I took a photography class on alternative lighting and it included several night shoots.  Trails of car lights are standard fare for such shoots, but several people commented on the risk I took setting up the tripod so close to the traffic, so maybe this was a "night venture."
On the way home after another night shoot, I tried shooting out the front window as I was driving, . . . alone, so maybe there was some risk involved there too.  If you want to do this I would recommend that someone else drive and you do it as a passenger.  This was the last shot I took as I went through THE "downtown" traffic light in Columbiana.  If you look close you can see the signs for M&F Bank and the Chevron station.  The twist came from rotating the camera, not a rollover accident.

As always Larry, I am never disappointed when I come over to your blog to view your photos. That class paid off for sure! What a splendid photo with the trail of red light....it's so sharp and i love the golden tones from the night.

Your second photo is pretty amazing...from the twist of the camera...pretty cool....looks like an abstract painting. Well done!

Night photography is one of my favorite, tough to do, and usually little time to go out shooting. Awsome pics, enjoyed them.
