The cover shot is probably my favourite photo taken at this year’s Brookfield Winter Lights Festival in Perth. It lent itself to black and white really well. I spent a couple of hours one Saturday night exploring the various light displays in the Brookfield area of the Terrace.
2017 was the 5th year that Brookfield was transformed into a playground for light. There were colourful light projections on the heritage buildings along St Georges Terrace, there was an interactive avatar projected onto one of the heritage buildings. It tracked and mimicked the movement of a person in the interactive zone. There was an interactive light installation where the giant light sticks would change colour depending on the position of the rod. I think the Fuji X-T10 and the 35mm F/1.4 did a great job capturing the low light and colourful lighting situations.
As we were walking along the Terrace we also noticed the awesomely rainbow coloured Perth Council hall building. The shots below were taking from the Cathedral Square precinct.
Exploring and taking photos of a city at night brings out a different side compared to photographing a city during the day. It was a chilly and wet winter’s night in Perth but it was worth it to brave the cold to get some fun and interesting shots. Thanks for stopping by today.
