Whether it’s just because out own predilections lead us down this path, or whether it’s because there’s great kit out there facilitating it, but there’s an increasing amount of stunning night footage appearing out there. And Miguel Angel Langa’s Night Lights is one of the best.

Night Lights really is gorgeous, a beautiful piece of work that makes the most of the a7s’ low light capabilities and then marries them with some stunningly composed visuals. From the long slow shot of the fecund full moon to the sweeping panoramas of the landscapes and skyscrapers in which it is set, it really showcases what you can do with a good camera, a good slider, and a flair for art direction.
