Across The Bay

Don’t put your camera away just because the sun has set. With today’s digital cameras, taking photographs at night is easier than ever and a lot of fun.

Photographing Melbourne's urban landscapes is particularly fun at night. When it gets dark, cities provide their own light source. Melbourne is a highly photogenic city to photograph at night, with a classic skyline of glass and metal high-rises and a interweaving maze of freeways, overpasses and bridges.  We will capture all of this across the bay at Williamstown.  

Night photography really begins about 20 minutes after sunset, during the “blue hour.” During this phase of twilight, the ambient light in the sky begins to balance in brightness with the lights from the city. This is when the color and brilliance of Melbourne’s lights really start to shine. Additionally, the sky takes on a very cool blue tone during this phase, even when it’s cloudy.  As then night sets in the colour of the sky at Williamstown will become a dramatic pink.
