Photo Series: Epoch

More industrial and city photos with a vintage theme.

28 June 2020

You may have noticed that I like taking photos at night. I've always liked to observe how light sources reflect, diffuse and cast shadows across different surfaces. In particular, I love the fog and how it volumises light. The image above was taken on one such foggy night.

An industrial estate local to me. Not sure why the lights were on at 9pm though.
London, just off Regent St.
A rundown warehouse where ghosts weave their magic.

Setup

  • Sony A7 III
  • Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8
  • Manfrotto MT190XPRO4 tripod

Settings

If I have a tripod (and I am shooting a still subject), then I will aim to shoot at base ISO (100 on my camera). Without a tripod, my ISO is between 800-3200. The A7 III handles low light very well and so I am confident to push the ISO to 3200 and deal with any noise later in Lightroom, but your mileage may vary.

I also tend to shoot slightly underexposed to claw back some shutter speed, and because shadow recovery from RAW files is much easier than highlight recovery.
