One of the trickier things to do in photography and getting right (at least it's been that way for me) is night photography. The hit to miss ratio is so much lower than in daytime photography, because you're dealing with such long exposures that things can go wrong in mid-process in countless number of ways. Yet, it's fun to do...partly because you get such unexpected results sometimes.
The photos in this post are all from a brief photo outing around the Triangeln train station in Malmö on the theme that I've named this blog post for. "The lights of the night". They're all done with my 1974 Canon TLb and a 50 mm Canon 1.8 lens. I used Kodak Tri-X 400 film, pushed to 1600 and the exposures are between 5 and 20 seconds long (different for different pictures). It was the first time I'd used it for night photography and I am glad at least some of the pictures turned out alright. I was shooting mostly by "guesstimate" rather than measuring the light...since there was little of that to measure!
