Timothy Little lives in Falmouth, Massachusetts and shoots exclusively at night making him the only photographer on Cape Cod to do so. His portfolio of work is the largest collection of night imagery featuring Cape Cod and the Islands currently available. He is the author of Schiffer Book’s “Cape Cod Nights,” the first book to feature this popular New England destination as seen after dark. He’s also been featured in several regional publications such as Cape Cod Magazine, Visit Massachusetts and The Best of New England and helps guide others into the world of night photography via the workshops that he hosts throughout the year.
Nearly all of my work is completed at night using moonlight or ambient light to illuminate my subjects. In some cases, I will use a flashlight to “paint” color into the shadows. This technique is known as light painting.
As a night photographer, capturing images goes beyond the simple press of a button. Long exposure times allow me to move in and out of the shot unrecorded by the camera to add color when needed or to add emphasis to something that would otherwise have gone unnoticed in the dark. Shooting in the night allows me to immerse myself in a world that many people sleep through. It is a peaceful, meditative retreat from a busy, sunlit world.
Growing up, I was always been fascinated by the backdrop that a starry sky would create or how the silvery light of the moon would cast shadows across vistas that I had become used to seeing under the afternoon sun. It is this alternate view of places, the feeling of solitude and peace in the night, that I hope to convey to you through my photography.
