Discussion / NO PHOTOS  - 
 
...removed over two dozen inappropriate posts this morning.  I'm always open to hear your thoughts on how to improve this community. Thanks to everyone who shares good night photography and NOT sunsets, nudity, spam, fake photoshop-nightscapes, and photos that don’t give credit to the photographer!

+Royce Bair I'd agree with everyone else that the community needs more moderation. I greatly enjoy the community,and it deserves the best! I know that you said you're just a moderator, but is there a way you can contact +thomas o'brien about increasing the number of community moderators?

I know the tremendous amount of work that's involved in a community this size; I moderate the Landscape Photography community (goo.gl/WCGvTh), where we have 30 moderators... and the work load for each of us is still large! If you're so inclined, I'd be happy to volunteer a bit of time as well. Even if you don't want or need me, I'd still encourage you to contact Thomas to approve more moderation.

Cheers,
+AJ Lim

Add YOUR night photos to the NightScaper Gallery. This Moulton barn photo was taken by Ryan Stafford, with collaborative post processing done by me.

I have switched my main portable lights to those which use the same rechargeable batteries. They may not be as convenient, but I always have a charged battery to use.

Great shot Royce!! It's also amazing how little light it takes to light paint.

NightScape Photographer
Introduction
As a magazine photographer for over two decades, I've enjoyed a wide variety of assignments. I also enjoy helping other photographers achieve their Photo Vision. My current emphasis is on a night photography style I call "NightScapes": Starry night skies with a unique landscape feature --many of which are light-painted to enhance recognition. I also feature other photographers in my Into The Night Photography blog, complete with tips, tutorials, and equipment reviews.
Bragging rights
I've been a professional illustrative photographer and an international lecturer for 20 years. My clients have included IBM and General Motors, and have appeared in National Geographic, The Smithsonian, American Photo, and on the covers of numerous books.
Education
  • Brigham Young University
Had dinner here last week. Excellent food. Good service, and an amazing view of Jackson Lake, even at night.
