Photographing in bad lighting is always a challenge, but also brings out your creative side... using color filters, long-exposures and unusual angles to your subject helps create an image all to its own.


During my first night stay in Fiji during my February 2015 trip I was anxious to shoot something after my 10.5 hour flight. As the sun was setting I wanted to capture Beqa Island out in from of my hotel so I set up my camera, threw on a filter and took a long exposure. Not knowing what I would get is part of the fun of shooting in imperfect light. After a few exposures I nailed this haunting image of the mostly abandoned island. The just off-center angle really makes the island very pronounced and brings to mind an aura of mystery... and misdirection.
