  • River Wensum at Night

    Last month we looked at some of the photographic possibilities along the river Wensum in Norwich between Carrow Road and Fye Bridge Street during daylight hours. This time we will retrace our route by night and look for fresh possibilities.

    We start down by the river near to the football stadium at Carrow Road. Similarly to during the day we can make the most of reflections in the water. At night, these reflections can sometimes be even clearer to see. Night photography is slightly more difficult than during the day due to the low light levels. So, you need to make sure that you have a tripod to mount your camera on. If not, you won't be able to hold the camera steady enough to get a good photo. As always, keep the ISO low (100-200). The aperture (if you can choose it yourself) would be around f/5.6-f/11 depending on the scene. As with landscape photography you want a small aperture to keep most of the scene sharp. However, you may need to open it up a little to allow more light in.
