There are a lot of reasons why some photographers like taking street photos at night. The first and most obvious, of course, is the fact that the street becomes more alive.
And this is not just because more people go out at night, but also because the night brings a more dramatic, extraordinary effect to otherwise simple scenes. This is true especially for busy streets like the ones you see in cities.
The cityscape is embraced by different light sources; there are colored ones, dancing lights, solitary and steady lights, car lights, and even lampposts. The scene is bathed in a myriad of colors, so there’s a more exciting vibe. It’s like everything is given a different meaning.
However, you won’t be able to get good shots if you do not know how to do it properly. Or if you do not have the right equipment. Therefore, it is important to first learn what you need to prioritize, do and keep in mind before going out at night with your camera.
