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.
