Juror’s Statement

The qualities that make for a good night photograph are light, atmosphere, composition, and subject. For me personally, it is usually the quality of light that captures my attention and draws me to a scene.

Night photography often appeals to our romantic sensibilities, and thus images that convey a strong mood or atmosphere are hard to resist. Stillness, quiet, solitude, darkness, mystery — these are the qualities I look for in nocturnes. Suggestive images that leave something to the imagination often hold the viewer’s attention longer than a literal presentation that gives the story away on first viewing. Composition reinforces the aforementioned qualities, and helps to lead the viewer’s eye. Finally, an interesting subject completes the photograph and gives an image purpose.

Many strong images were submitted for Night Photography: Dusk to Dawn, and I wish I could have included more; it was a real challenge to limit the choices to 75 photographs. The quality of the images was outstanding, and I look forward to seeing the prints in the gallery. It was a real privilege to be a part of this exhibit.

Call for Entries

Photography from the hours of dusk to dawn offers vast creative opportunities, and with them, substantial technical challenges. The long exposures that are often required turn pinpoints of light into star trails, test the sturdiness of our tripods, and require photographers to constantly make technical decisions; perhaps no other photographic endeavor better illustrates the profound difference between the human eye and the camera.

But along with its challenges, working at night immerses the photographer in a somewhat alien, often insecure environment that heightens senses, speeds up the pulse, and reminds us that we humans are not nocturnal creatures

We seek technically excellent images that express the mystery and solitude that are so a part of photographing at night.

All capture methods and processes are welcome.
