Humans have always had an entrancing relationship with the dark. Within our minds Darkness breeds mystery, fantasy and occasionally fear. Darkness is the space in which stories are born. As photographers we capture these stories and feelings in a moment to better explore them and our own dark passenger. We look forward to exploring the darkness in your photography.

PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS FOR YOU:
Use a tripod: Since you'll be shooting in low light, it's important to keep your camera steady. A tripod is essential for this, and will help you avoid blurry or shaky shots.
Increase ISO: In low light situations, you may need to increase the ISO on your camera to allow more light in. However, be careful not to increase it too much as this can result in grainy or noisy images.
Use manual focus: When shooting in low light, your camera's autofocus may struggle to find a focus point. Switching to manual focus will give you more control over the sharpness of your images.
Use wide aperture: A wider aperture (lower f-stop number) will allow more light into your camera, which can be helpful when shooting in low light conditions.
Experiment with shutter speed: Depending on the amount of available light, you may need to use a slower shutter speed than usual. This will allow more light to enter the camera, but be mindful that a slower shutter speed can also result in motion blur.
Take advantage of light sources: Look for interesting light sources such as streetlights, candles, or even the moon to create unique lighting effects in your photos.
Shoot in RAW format: Shooting in RAW format will allow you to make adjustments to your images later on during post-processing, such as adjusting exposure, color balance, and noise reduction.
