Night Light in the Adirondacks


August 1st through the 4th I participated in a workshop titled ‘Photographing the Night Landscape’. Held in Inlet, NY in the Adirondacks, the program was very well-presented by Mark Bowie of the Adirondack Photography Institute. The group stayed at the Woods Inn on Fourth Lake which is part of the Fulton Chain of Lakes. It was a fun time with a great group of people and I learned a lot. Unfortunately (as so often happens) the weather was not always in our favor. Sunrise and sunsets were less than we had hoped for and clouds often covered the stars we would have enjoyed photographing. Most of our time was spent in the classroom looking and learning from the instructor’s vast portfolio of nighttime images as well as processing and participating in critiques of our efforts. Aside from shooting landscapes we did some experimenting with light painting that included people and some street photography in the village. Here are some images that come closest to what I was looking to come away with from the experience.

      Thanks Lou. That is my favorite too. Actually the foreground was lit by some street lights, not painting. The dock in the last image was painted.

  2. Keep up the good work sis. It will pay off eventually! I love that “other worldly” feeling you convey.
