“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.”
- George Eastman

Let’s face it. After the sun sets, the everyday world around us magically transforms into something else altogether. From the streets to the fireworks to the monuments, every subject out there becomes a potential masterpiece. But to capture them, one needs to be patient while dealing with slow shutter speeds and changing lighting conditions. And only after you have meticulously thought about your composition will you be rewarded with a picture that’s truly worth a thousand words.

Here are 15 stunning low-light photographs that prove that somethings are best captured in the dark:
