Bollard at night, January 2008

I was taking an advanced photography class at the local art and design university and had to come up with a final project. I had some success with some longer exposures in the past and wanted to explore it a bit more. So, having never done any night photography before and being intrigued by it, I thought I’d combine the two by doing a series of long-exposure night photographs. This was my very first attempt and I was quite pleased with it.

At first I was disappointed by the lens flare caused by a pier lights. After a while it grew on me and I now think it actually adds a bit of mood instead of just being a technical flaw. It was fairly low light and difficult to focus, I’m amazed at how sharp the bollard turned out.
