, thanks for your nice words guys! It's very rewarding to find a thread with your own name in this forum.
Well, you really have to adapt here in the North. It is possible to shoot long days in summer (if you don't get bored to traffic
) and night shots in winter. Of course if I have to choose between a grey day shot or a more colorful night shot, I don't have to think hard
Night shooting is not very hard once you master the technique. If it's very dark and shutterspeeds are n seconds, you need to "think" n seconds forward because there are always some ground vehicles or other planes driving/taxiing behind or front of your subject. Sometimes I've taken tons of photos of a single plane and maybe one came out useful. This is not a problem with digital but back in the days when I was shooting film this was far more expensive if you had to burn 1-2 rolls of film to get one decent shot
ps. thanks for the plug
