Night Photography in Seoul Thru the Lens of Garry Castro

Night photography is a hurdle of an aspiring photographer. It is quite challenging hence it requires apt use of artificial light and long exposure and the mastery of photography.

For Garry Castro, FILIPOS member since 2010 and with a keen passion in night photography, it is frantic and amusing chasing the colorful light trails of Seoul. He owns Canon EOS 5D Mark II and eventually his photography buddy.
