A two image stitch showing the Old Court House in downtown Red Deer at night. Another of the excursion courses that I was helping teach with Dwight Arthur, this time on night photography. An exposure of 5 seconds was necessary to capture the light. In order to get the deep blue sky you should squint your eyes and when the brightness level on the building looks about the same as that of the sky it’s time to shoot. I was a bit late on this one as the sky is a bit dark, but it almost always makes this kind of photograph look better than when the sky is black.
