Night Photography from the Roof of the World

Night photography is a fascinating genre of landscape photography and involves patience, planning and pre-visualization. It’s time consuming but the results are worth the time investment. Right from location scouting to the compositional aspects of a frame, there is a thought which goes behind each image and the challenges makes this form of photography extremely rewarding specially when the location is upper part of Ladakh where one needs to brave extreme weather conditions in order to get that perfect image.

Here is an interesting image that I along with my gang of photographers created in TsoKar a few days back. In addition to the night sky, the presence of an interesting foreground subject always gives a punch to night images. A beam of torch was lit for around 30 seconds as the idea was to create an image titled – Illuminating my own universe.

30-45 mins of trials made the night experience fulfilling for all of us.

    Good job Shivang. Was that a composite, or a long exposure? If long exposure, how long?

    • Experimented with exposures ranging from 30 secs to 1 minute. This one would be at around 45 seconds.
