Night Photography – Walking Lalibela (in the rain)
by John Downey
I shot these using a G11 and waterproof housing. The camera stayed dry. I did not.
Even with a rain jacket, when you’re holding a camera, water drains from your hands all the way down to the nether areas. Amazingly miserable. But the upshot to this evening was a decent hotel with hot water to shower off grit and a full pour of Chianti for post-processing (for these, nothing but a square crop). Night photography can yield some interesting results. You may not even realize what you get by checking the viewfinder. Like waiting for a print to resolve in the developer.
