Hawaiian Show on Cruise Ship

This album is made up of photos taken at night, or in low light (“available light” for photographers…)

When I first started taking pictures I was frustrated by the poor performance of film and cameras in low light. I wanted see everything.

I tried flash, but it only works in very specific situations. When I tried to take a long exposure to match the lighting situation, either the film was too grainy, or there was too much movement to get a sharp photo.

Like the monochromatic photo situation, we now have wonderful digital cameras that can “see into the dark”. Since purchasing a camera that would make good high-ISO pictures (the Nikon D700), I’ve been experimenting with low-light photography.

With my newer camera (Panasonic GX-85) the results are even nicer.
