Photography: Dusk Photo Shoot

The weather this past weekend was unseasonably warm for New Jersey. Since I had to take a picture at dusk for my photography class, I decided to take advantage of the balmy evening to shoot along the Hoboken waterfront. It was great! Everyone was out walking around and I saw others taking pictures, too.

I shot with my Sony a6000 mirrorless camera in manual mode, f5.6 and ISO 800. The assignment was to find the right shutter speed (SS).

The Empire State Building. SS 1/50

One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower). SS 1/250

Another of the Empire State Building, before it was lit up for the evening. SS !/500

The Hoboken Train Terminal. SS 1/500

It took me a while to get down to the Hoboken waterfront at dusk. (Next thing I want to try is taking photos there at dawn. Wish me luck. Ha, ha!)

Tell me. When is your favorite time of the day to take pictures?

This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!
