Time-Lapse Photography at Night

We are entering the darkest week of the year, a depressing detail for SAD sufferers and a celebratory fact for nocturnal photographers.

For the sake of both, let’s hope for clear skies and low light pollution.

If stars are visible, this week may be the best time for capturing star trails with time-lapse photography:

Time-lapse photography also works well with flashlights and Ferris wheels:

And, for the non-photographers,
