I’ve been working on a photo project over the last 3 months that involves capturing night photographs in the city of Milwaukee. Most of the photos I’ve taken so far involve the lakefront or riverfront areas. I’ve found that the best time to capture the essence of the night not only “lit by itself”, but also existing by itself is to go out at 1:00 in the morning. Other than an occasional passer-by a bit tight with drink, I have the city to myself. Also important is the weather forecast for the early morning. Best results are had when the winds are calm and the temperature is warm enough that I don’t freeze my ass off.
