Night Watch - atmospheric pictures of abandoned buildings
Night Watch - a series of copyright night, amateur Photo Tour, the main purpose is to shoot unusual, weather, night shots.
This is not a photoshop - the author takes an old abandoned chapel and houses, illuminating them from within.
I - amateur photographer, really go at night, almost always the same, really light the inside of the building.
First my picture turned out, we can say, casually. We missed the sunset and I'm angry as hell, I decided to remove the ruins of the church even in the twilight, and Lech at this time came with a flashlight inside, investigate something there. I asked him to hold the flashlight for 30 seconds, the result was this picture:
The next six months I began to study the organization of lighting options, select and purchase equipment. As a result, I have gathered a visiting studio with tripods, stands, umbrellas, diffusers, reflectors, so late one winter night to take it all and leave Fota cemetery and the ruins of the night.
The first thing that surprised me on his return, is that instead of a couple hundred shots from the trip, I brought only a 4. I later realized that the 4 - that's a lot for one night
Every evil was so scared of our massive artillery barrage, that she had no choice but to shut his mouth and does not stick out.

I came to Ruzhany in full confidence that on a weekday, in the night I'm here alone. But the ruins of the local inhabitants have their own night, which we spent the night. In the palace was silent feast.
In principle, we have existed peacefully side by side, only occasionally scaring each other. Basically, they told me. Carried away by the arrangement of illumination, I forgot about reality, and flashing in the openings of the old castle ruins, silent dark shadows, watching me, often frightened me. Sharp beam of my flashlight at them - and they are already scared, blocking the light.
At first there was nothing:
Then I turned on the yellow highlighting:
Then the pink ...
Finally, the blue:
So he final touch:
And then, as the culmination of an alarming picture, low-low on the horizon, the moon rose. It was very big and red! The spectacle was enthusiastic and ominous, I did not expect such a surprise.

"From birth to death"
Without knowing it, the patrol I went to places that are closely associated with the birth and death of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania.
We walk on this earth, take a step, and do not notice, do not think about the events that occurred in this place 50, 100, 150 ... years ago. So it was with me this time. But as always! Preparing for the next watch, I'm more concerned with photogenic object, camera angles available. From historical data, usually enough for me to know the object's destination and year of construction.
