PhotoPlace Gallery: Night Photography - Dusk to Dawn

Night Photography: Dusk to Dawn
Deadline: October 10

PhotoPlace Gallery
Middlebury, VT

Juror: Lance Keimig

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.
