People with LoLS syndrome intentionally like dark areas, moody alleys and all in all night time. They try to create and use this situations often to the point of having to be carried away to their bed at odd hours. These people are sometimes eager to go for extreme shooting times in order to get their settings. They are also known to move from a dark place to darker places, from moody alley to dark alley, or dusk to nighttime to find new scenes. Once they have exhausted the given areas and possible options available in a given local setting they are looking for proxy situations to further enhance their craftsmanship. Lately foremost Sony users are often the individuals identified as having LoLS syndrome, but anyone with a camera and a good low light sensitive sensor may develop this condition.
