AFTER DARK: Call for Submissions

DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 15, 2010

Contests, Juried Art Shows - Photography Photo Gallery

As the sun sets, a whole new world of photographic opportunities presents itself. Buildings, streets and time lapse take on a different light at night. But don’t stop there- ever hear of “Night life”? Carnivals? Animals? People? Theater? There is a voyeuristic feel to night images, the viewer senses that they are observing life from the shadows. Urban lights create high drama – colors intensify and shadows loom. In the country, things become scary and still. Is there just a hint of the sunset left? Time lapse can create fantastic swirls of lights creating abstract compositions. Show us what your camera sees “After Dark”.
