This here is what makes up Thomas’s night photography. Looking at all of his types of photography night photography does not make up a lot of what he takes photos of, but that does not mean that he doesn’t care about night photography. When looking at other night photographers work, a lot of the photos consist of just stars or the sky. What is unique about his night photos is that he captures objects along with the sky. In his night photos he doesn’t disregard what the sky shows. I’ve noticed that sometimes in night photography it’s hard to know what the main focus of the photo is, if there even is a focus. But for Thomas he makes it clear what the main focus is while also shining a light on the sky. One of my favorite photos he has is the picture of the Aurora Borealis with the tent. It is unique and makes it look so magical with all of the colors along with the tent having lights coming from it.

He quotes “”With solar storms at their peak, I knew 2011 was going to be a great year for the Aurora Borealis, so I set aside three weeks in the high Canadian Arctic to try to capture this stunning phenomenon. I spent these nights outside in temperatures of around -40C to -45C” (BBC News).
