The Making of "The Hub" - Boston Night Photography

The Hub - Boston skyline photography images

Boston makes for great Night Photography and I regularly head out to capture its landmarks, skyscrapers and skyline views at that time of day. The other night I went back to a location in the Seaport District that allows an unobstructed view of Boston State Street Corporation, The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, The Boston Millennium Tower and the One Financial Center. These are some of the tallest skyscrapers in Boston but falling a bit short of the John Hancock Tower and the Prudential Center. The weather played along and provided perfect conditions. There was not a single cloud in the sky and the sunset and twilight light was beautiful. Equipped with a 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens from Canon and the Mark IV I was able to isolate the 4 buildings against the turquoise light of the night. An aperture setting at f/9 provided the depth of field and at ISO200 a long exposure time of 15 seconds. 

During post-processing I adjusted highlights, shadows, lighting, contrast and color saturation in moderations before removing dust spots and sharpening the final image of The Hub.         

Good light and happy photo making!
