Night-it-Up! 2013 Photography

Hi everyone! I hope you have all been well! Today I’m sharing some photography I grabbed at Night-it-Up that took place last weekend in front of the Markham Civic Centre.


Shooting at Night-it-Up was definitely a challenge. I arrived around 8:30 with my camera ready and there was still a bit of light in the sky. As I kept shooting, it kept getting darker and I had to pause between every few minutes to reset my camera until the sky turned pitch black. It wasn’t only lighting that was a challenge but the hordes of people bumping and shifting in crowds trying to get to where they want to go. I think shooting from an aerial perspective would give me some really cool light effects. However, I’m only 5 foot, quite short and there wasn’t much to climb up on. Maybe I should have took my chances with the trees LOL

These photographs are shot with my trusty Nikon D3100 and a 17-70mm Sigma macro lens. As always, these haven’t been edited or touched up except for the title photography where I added some text. This weekend I’m going to try to get into the T&T Waterfront Night Market to scope out some nice shots. There’s definitely going to be A LOT more people. Hopefully I don’t get squashed! Wish me luck!

Hope you guys enjoy these and thank you so much for reading!
