The best time to start shooting night photography is right after sunset, at the start of the blue hour, usually around 6pm in Antigua Guatemala, for dramatic contrast between the yellow lights and buildings and the blue sky as shown above with the night vista of Parroquia de San José Catedral.
Here’s some of the equipment I recommend for night photography walks: tripod, remote shutter release, fisheye lens, wide-angle lens, prime or zoom, a flashlight to illuminate the camera and to do light-painting, and a flash speed light for portraiture, and a laser beam torch for creative photos.
If you need help with this equipment or to learn the art of night photography, you can also book a photo walk me at www.AntiguaPhotoWalks.com.
