Night training in a fog


This is a tripod based long exposure photograph taken during a night football training in a nearby field. It was a very foggy night and a strong field light created ghostly effects around surrounding electrical poles in the background. There are also different people dynamics here as each of the players was running through a different routine. The man doing crunch ups has not moved during the exposure, while someone else run half of the view in the same time, leaving only shady traces of light.



Keeping your photographs level can be sometimes a challenge. For example this scene has a number of ramps between two buildings. Each one of these ramps slopes at a different angle. The street you enter this arcade from is also on an angle. So how do you find what is horizontal? The answer in this case is: you don’t look for horizontal lines as they are all confusing by design. You need to look at the vertical lines in the shop buildings and align your image to that. Once you do that the horizontals will be right too.
