Dusk Photography

One of my favorite types of photography is dusk photography.  The vibrant, saturated colors after sunset really make an image stand out.  Dusk shots take much advance thought and preparation. Decisions on the best angle of composition and lighting and solutions to possible technical challenges all must be made before the critical moment.  There is only a very short window of time to carry off a successful dusk shot.  Below are three recent dusk shots I photographed on a professional assignments.  Please click on images to enlarge.
