I would like you all to join me on a little journey of night photography. I only know what I have gathered from my experience, but I feel like there is more I am missing. Throughout my photographic adventures with my, Canon Powershot SD200, Canon Digital Rebel, and, newest of the three, Canon Powershot SD800 IS, I have gathered some pretty cool night shots.
The following photos were taken with my first camera, Canon SD200.
This was my first night photograph.
Taken on the roof of my car when I went out driving in the night.
And sometimes my night photographs....
would take my for one strange ride.
Another one of my firsts. Taken when I lived in Erie, PA.
All those were a combination of luck and learning.
Now I would like to master using my Rebel for night photography. I think this weeks lesson will be all about the flash.
Sorry that this wasn't that funny. Read this joke I found as token of compensation:
"Invited to Dinner"
A girl asks her boyfriend, to come over Friday night and have dinner with her parents. Since this is such a big event, the girl announced to her boyfriend that after dinner, she would like to go out and make love for the first time. Well, the boy is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms. The pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour. He tells the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex. At the counter, the pharmacist asks the boy how many condoms he'd like to buy: a 3-pack, 10-pack, or a family pack. "I'm really going to give it to this girl," the boy tells the pharmacist. "I intend to go for hours and hours." The pharmacist, with a laugh, suggests the family pack, saying the boy will be rather busy, it being his first time and all.
That night, the boy shows up at the girls parents house and meet his girlfriend at the door. "Oh I'm so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in!" The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl's parents are seated. The boy quickly offers to say grace and bows his head. A minute passes, and the boy is still deep in prayer with his head down. 10 minutes passes and still no movement from the boy. Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend finally leans over and whispers to the boyfriend, "I had no idea you were this religious. " The boy turns, and whispers back, "I had no idea your father was a pharmacist!!"
