My favourite time for shooting at night is right after the rain has stopped. The streets are still empty, everything shines and, crucially, you don’t get wet. So, when I headed out into Amsterdam with the X100S on a rainy night I did so hoping that, by time I got off the Metro, the rain would have stopped and it would be perfect. Well, it didn’t stop raining all night and I got epically soaked. Obviously, trying to take pictures means no brolly so by the time I arrived back at the station below, I was drenched. Still, I persevered and got some pictures. Had to all be handheld as I wasn’t standing about with a tripod getting me and the camera very wet. As ever, the X100S coped very well but it did mean pushing the ISO and having some smudgy looking lights. I carried the tripod round with me though, just to make it a decent amount of effort.
Glad I persevered though, the streets still shined and I got my bearing for the next night, which was dry. Pics from that night soon.
