Night and day, dark and light - one implies the absence of the other.  But like yin yang, each has a bit of the other. The surprising thing to first time night photographers is how their images reveal things that the mind's eye does not see.  Different light sources reveal their true colors. Compared to daylight, directed and weaker light creates drama, contrast, mystery and mood. The dynamic range of light at night tends to be more in line with our tools abilities. Of course there are technical challenges with shooting in low light, but also tremendous creative opportunities. That's what we want to show with this exhibit. Do you work with existing light - or do you introduce your own? Maybe you paint with light emitting light brushes. How have you approached shooting at night to express your vision? We want to see.

Juror: Linda Rutenberg

Juror's Statement:

It was very exciting reviewing the submissions for the contest.. They were varied, experimental in nature and people used their imaginations and tried different approaches. Some were very long exposures where we could see the movement of the stars, there was a lot of light painting, double exposures and then thoughtful and compositionally interesting night shots…

I think if there is one comment that I can make it would be that one must consider the composition.. I think a lot of people are just thrilled to get a good exposure and forget about the focus and the composition.. However, those two elements make the different e between the good shots and the great ones….
