Looking In From the Outside
My daughter had a night lecture she had to attend on campus, and I offered to take her and wait while she was inside. She didn’t think it was going to be too long, so I didn’t mind waiting. I took my camera along, always hoping for an opportunity to learn new things about how to shoot in different situations.
I know that for most night shots that you really need a tripod because of the low light. I just haven’t broken down and purchased one yet, so I do the best I can with just hand-holding my camera. I’ll try to steady myself against a wall or something. Although, it was so windy that night that I could feel the lamp posts swaying as I tried to steady my back against them.
Anyway, these are the shots I took.
One thing I did notice was how many females were sitting close to the windows in direct view of anyone from the outside. I don’t try to be a worrier–unnecessarily. However, the fact that I was able to observe and even take photos of them got me to thinking that it would be so easy for some “creeper” (as my daughter calls them) to watch an unsuspecting person’s moves and habits. I am going to show these to my daughter and let her know to pick a seat toward the interior of the building if she has to do any late night studying–and always go with a buddy!
