First time in Chicago!

Back in May this year I made my first visit to Chicago from Toronto. As a night photographer, this city has been on one of my top 10 city destinations for night photography. Since I needed some new content for my new online portfolio which I built with Format, I hit the streets armed with my Sony a7r III to catch some night photos of Chicago. The two locations I enjoyed the most had to have been the observation decks on top of Willis Tower and the John Hancock Building. I was able to get some pretty incredible photos from up there!

What top destinations do you guys have for night photos? Looking for some cool suggestions for my next trip! I need to fill up my portfolio some more :)

    All four of those are very good, but that first shot just blows me away. Maybe straighten it up just a bit and that is a portfolio image right there. You caught the city at its best (night) light.

    Nice work. Two classic places for the downtown skyline are the Planetarium and Navy Pier.
