Low Light

I do a lot of low-light photography because the weather and day-light in Ireland is often challenging. My favourite time for night-photography is the 'blue-hour' - from 30 to 90 minutes after sunset. During this time you can achieve very nice exposures with a good balance between artificial light and the blue light remaining in the sky - especially facing westwards.

“Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished” … Michael Strassfeld

“There are two kinds of light - the glow that illumines, and the glare that obscures” … James Thurber

“Firelight will not let you read fine stories but it's warm and you won't see the dust on the floor” … Irish Proverb

“You can't have a light without a dark to stick it in” … Arlo Guthrie

“Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness” … Chinese Proverb
