Lighting Up the Days & Nights

I look forward to brighter days and spending more time outdoors and connecting with people. One of the things I can’t wait to attend is a waterfront light festival. I love lights and lanterns and as a tribute, here are many of the images I captured on my travels. Some of my favourite scenes are light festivals, holiday lights and lanterns.

Most often when I do work for my company or through freelance work, I like to keep them confidential unless I’m given permission for portfolio purposes. For portfolio work, I head to the studio. This way, I have permission from the model to post their images and people can see what I can do.

On June 15th, I managed to drop in at the studio as a last minute decision to catch one of their workshops (posted that morning) that was held in the evening. The theme was patterns and lights. I worked with both Canon and Nikon during the light photogrpahy portion. Both cameras were on a tripod with Canon having a wider shot. I wanted to see if there was a difference between the two cameras. Aside from the slight variation in settings, the images were slightly different in that Canon had a warmer tint. I was able to warm up the images for Nikon in the editing stage. Here’s what I took:
