Trillium Night and Long Exposure Photography Group

Last updated: September 21, 2016


"Dofasco by Night" by John Strung

Vincent van Gogh said " I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day." As the night falls a whole new group of subjects comes to life.

The night photography group is an outing based group for anyone who would like to take photographs when the sun goes down and the lights come on. Our aim is to explore city lights, bridges, piers, moving lights, fireworks, starry skies, and any other topics of interest to the group.

Most outings will commence at dusk and be locally based. Some of our outings may take us further afield to capture starry skies or to explore the lights of other cities.

As well as night photography, the group may explore daytime long exposure photography using neutral density filters or panning techniques.

For questions or to make suggestions contact John Strung.

Members can share their photographs via the Trillium Club Flickr Photo Pool.
