Basel has been a great creative inspiration for me. In this article I share with you some of my latest photography from Basel, Switzerland.
I have been struck with an impulse recently to spend the odd evening travelling around and experimenting with low light and golden hour photography. Working in this light allows a multitude of creative options. Essentially, one hour before the sun sets and an hour afterwards, sunlight has to travel through much more atmosphere before reaching us. This results in a much more diffuse light hitting the ground and thus a softer warmer overall lighting is achieved. Being a fan of night photography I would tend to hang around to see what I could see even after the light had gone.
I still have so much to learn but it is amazing what is possible even with a camera, tripod and a little bit of patience.
Some of the highlights are below. Have a look through the photos and if you have any questions or comments please let me know either below or via twitter @benkepka.
