The lights of downtown Iowa City.

The open sign from Aspen Leaf Frozen Yogurt in downtown Iowa City on April 5. This is a B&W photo I took from a worm’s view.

The photos I took are from downtown Iowa City because I wanted to capture the beautiful light at night downtown. From the shoots, I learned you need a little bit of luck and a lot of experience. It was hard to focus on the concept I had and taking the photos ideally. If I wasn’t holding the camera properly, the images shook and came out blurry, and if I didn’t grab the camera properly, the photos were crooked and uneven. So I learned that photography is also all about practicing.
