Nighttime

Shooting under a full moon or the Milky Way can also produce amazing results. This is the preferred time to shoot for a lot of well-known UrbEx photographers. There’s just something about the full moon that produces remarkable photos with fairly little effort and much less risk than shooting in broad daylight.

Photos that are produced under the full moon look deceptively like daytime shots. The main giveaways are that you won’t see harsh highlights and stars can usually be seen somewhere in the scene. If you’re in a particularly dark location, which you often are, it can feel as if you’re shooting at night, so the same shooting techniques apply.
