Street Lamps

You know what I often overlook when I am designing an outdoor lighting system? The damn street lamps! I hate those damn things! They can totally ruin a photo shoot. Totally drown out the effect I was trying to create with my outdoor lighting.

Sometimes the lighting job I did actually still looks pretty awesome, despite the street lights flooding the yard a little. But the problem is when I go to take night time photos, the ambient light from the street light shows up a LOT more prevalent in my photos than it does in person.

Sometimes I just want to bring a BB gun with me to my photo shoots and shoot out that damn street light that is ruining my lighting job. Am I the only one who has ever felt that way?

I need to start to take those things into account more, as I am designing my systems.
