It is that time of the year again that we head out during the night time and point our cameras upwards!The Perseids, the annual meteor shower, are putting up their yearly show again. This is an excellent opportunity for us to try out astrophotography, or sharpen your skills if you are already comfortable shooting the night skies. Since not everyone has an optimal vantage point to observe the Perseids or can have an entire week of rainy weather, our theme this week is night photography rather than astrophotography. You are more than welcome to point your camera horizontal, rather than upwards and show us how the night time looks in your corner of the woods. Maybe it there will be fireflies in a meadow, children playing with sparklers in the garden, someone staring into a campfire or the reflection of lights in a body of water. So pack up your tripods, flashlights, and bug repellent, dear Framers. Or dress up warmly if you are going to see the Southern Cross. Wait until it is nice and dark outside and then go and shoot the night.
