Travel Photography in Cuba, Santiago at night...
This image was converted to black and white for a timeless look. Removing color allows light, shadow, texture and tonality to become more important throughout the composition without the connotations or impact of color. Black and white conversion can create a traditional classic look that is enduring.
Here is a link to a recent article I wrote on Creative Nightscapes for Topaz Labs Pro Insights, and also a little more specifically on how to shoot at night. Contact me for a workshop on night photography, or personalized instruction individual/group. You can also visit my website for more ideas, the Nightscapes portfolio has some of my photos from twilight and beyond. I'm a big fan of photographing at night, everything seems magical. Have fun shooting!
