Lights at Night


Last night I was like: "You know what sounds fun? Shooting. At night. Imma do that." So I put the babies to bed, grabbed my camera and headed out. My husband was worried about me being safe, but I told him that it was ok because I had my leather leggings and combat boots, and no one wants to mess with that. (Which I was totally wrong about. Some guy randomly pulled over in his car and tried to talk to me. Who does that?!)

Creepy drivers aside, I had a blast! And the photos turned out ok for my first attempt at night photography. Although next time I'll be sure to bring a tripod. :O)

Happy day!
love,
Disney

  1. LOVE these!! Did you focus manually? I have the worst time getting anything in focus when I shoot in low light ...

    1. Thank you! I used auto, it was too freezing to take the extra time to focus manually! But I did notice that it was a little more difficult to focus than usual.

    2. It is! I *may* have creeped through your pics a little to see if I recognized you (I don't!). If you're up for it, Tasha and I would love to make you lunch and have a playdate for all our kids - we have two toddler boys, a baby boy, and a baby girl between the two of us and we're always looking for friends for them!

  9. Those pictures are very cool! But I wondered how you politely broke contact with the random stranger who pulled over to chat. Those interactions make me SO UNCOMFORTABLE because I want to be smart and safe, but also not rude or assuming - what did you say to deflect interaction? I have a feeling you would be good at finding that balance.
