I found this video on YouTube and found it very informative and interesting, about why photographers shoot at night and how they do it, well worth watching all 3 parts
Part 1 ->
Part 2 ->
Part 3 ->
What strikes me as interesting is how the majority of night photographers had some sort of love or admiration for the darkness already, and as someone who fears the dark, and what lays in it, i think about how i could use this in my work. I think it appeals to me as someone who loves painting because it has the same control and aesthetics, a physical painting movement.
