Night at my house

Night photography is quite different than the daylight variety because you have very pointed light sources that change the color of your photo. I can change the white balance on my camera to suit my eye and I tend to like my images on the warm side... so I always make the white balance a little more red. Inside at night though, this setting is far too red. Look at me trying out a mustache....
So I switched my cameras white balance to the incandescent light setting. This makes the light a little more white and sometimes a little green, depending on the light bulb. I also changed my camera to its smallest aperture. Small apertures are great for distance shots because more stuff will be in focus, however it takes more time for light to get through, so you have to decrease your shutter speed. I thought it might be interesting to set up these long open shutter shots in my house... and that they would have a very particular night feeling


My thought now is that they might have been better on film....
