    About Fotonight Cologne

  • "You can take pictures from whatever you can see." Who has not yet made the experience: The nightly view of a funfair, a Christmas market in the evening, a New Year´s Eve party outside or just a fireworks, in all these situations it is quite hard to catch a good nightshot.
  • In most cases these ambitious projects end by causing frustration and getting dark pictures without any recognizable details. But exactly this is the way of taking pictures that is gaining more and more supporters because the results can be quite overwhelming. These pictures show a slightly surreal reflection of a city that should be well known but is not known at all.
  • Although taking pictures without much light is not as difficult as you think. Daniel Edel takes you on a nightly hike through the city of Cologne and shows you numerous tips and tricks how you can get amazing pictures of Cologne at night. No flash is needed to get light into the dark of a digital photo.
  • Especially for advanced photographers there are HDR workshops available. This method of photography tries to control the great contrast range of photo motifs at night by increasing the number of separate exposures. This procedure allows more control about light dynamics and many styles are possible: from real-life to surreal.
