Not Quite Night series #30 – Dakota Crescent

This first photo in 2017 was made 3 days ago at Dakota Crescent between 1915hrs to 1930hrs. I got my iPhone 6 Plus laid horizontally on the ground getting the the lowest angle possible. Made a couple of shots on default mode and tilt-shifted in SHRWT for the vertical lines correctional. Next post-processed in Snapseed with further color contrast enhancement in Photoshop using Nik Color Efex Pro 4. It's cropped to 16:9 aspect ratio for the wide pano-cinematic effect.

Not Quite Night Project Logo

Tonight I am proud to present to you a new logo for my new photography project, Not Quite Night. For the past 4 months most of you readers have seen most of my NQN photos which are posted weekly here in this blog site.

In case some of our new readers do not know about Not Quite Night. NQN is a collection series of night street photographs made with a Smartphone camera, during the specific twilight period between 7:05PM to 7:25PM (Singapore Standard Time SST).

Created this simple animated banner out of fun.

The main reason why I use a Smartphone camera is simply it's light, fast and convenient. Nothing wrong to use a digital SLR camera for that tact sharp image quality and RAW image post-process but NQN is pretty much like an impromptu, guerrilla-style kind of night photography. Wherever I go during the twilight hour and when I spotted a night scenery I would take out my phone camera and snap away. For a DSLR, its size is quite bulky and setting up can take up certain amount of time especially when a tripod is deployed. This definitely slow me down. During that short time period of 20 minutes, I need to work fast and make as many different perspective shots as possible. Suffice it to say, a Smartphone camera is obviously the right choice as we carry it with us all the time, never leave home without it.

Well, there's an alternate option which is a mirrorless camera. With the advanced digital technology mirrorless camera is capable of producing tact sharp, good colors high quality images with fast shutter speed and low digital noise at super duper high ISO. Its compact size makes it convenient to carry wherever you go. I'm considering on this option but for the time being, I'll stick to my Apple iPhone 6 Plus.

Back on NQN, there are some similarities in ambience lighting between dawn and dusk. Though NQN could cover two different timelines, I chose the latter for its environmental atmosphere which opens up a greater possibilities in the aspect of night photography.

As of today onwards, all NQN photos will be watermarked with this logo. That's all for tonight! I hope to receive your continuous kind support. Until next blog post, take care and lights off!
