I’m still not that confident about my night photography.  Even as I play with my camera settings and use a tripod (okay, this time it was a make-shift tripod along the seawall), my shots still look a bit more grainy and a bit less crisp than the others I see.  That said, these were my three favorite shots at night along the Thames River.

What do you think?  Do you have a favorite below?  Any additional tips to help me improve my night shots?

Along the Thames at Night Photo #1.  The London Bridge at Night.

Along the Thames at Night Photo #2.  To the left is the HMS Belfast sitting in the River Thames.  In the background is the Tower Bridge at night, and to the right is a portion of the Jubilee Walkway.

Along the Thames at Night Photo #3.  View across the River Thames toward the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral.

    • Thanks so much! I still have sooooo much to learn about night photography, but I feel like my shots are slowly improving!

  1. First one for me. I like the lights in that one. They are all very good though

    • Thanks so much, Alastair! I feel I still have so far to go when it comes to night photography, but I can also really see an improvement over this past year!

      • I tell you what is fun .. but it takes a while to set up and you need some bits. You need a tripod and a remote would be handy, but not necessary. Set your camera for an open shutter speed and and point it towards a road. If you don’t have a remote, set the camera to timer, and then photograph the cars to get trails 🙂

        They are good night photos though, Also the same method will give you clear reflections on water as well 🙂

  2. I think these are fab night shots. I’m not an expert, and I still need to try out different settings when I’m doing night photography. Love the colors in the first one. 🙂

  3. I think these are great night shots, I’m also trying to figure out how to make my night shots look good lol! But these are really great 🙂

  4. I’ve never been on the Thames…great pics like this are the next best thing 🙂


I love hearing from you!
