Lumiere London 2016

January 17, 2016  •  1 Comment

For the first time the Lumiere Festival came to London in 2016. A collection of art created from light itself and displayed across London for four day in mid January. With the installations spread over a large area it would probably take all of the four days to see everything. I'm guessing that due to some of the busiest roads in Central London being closed for some of the displays they could only do the show for four hours between 6:30pm and 10pm. I wish they could have started a little earlier while there was still some colour in the sky. It would have really enhanced a few of my photographs to have the deep blue of a twilight sky over the solid jet black. That aside it was a wonderful display of beautiful colours shapes & movement. Photos don't really do it justice. Even the best cameras are still limited in the range of darks to lights they can see in one go. Unlike the human eye which constantly adapts and draws in detail from the deepest shadows to the brightest highlights. So do yourself a favour, if you hear of Lumiere coming to a town near you I strongly urge you to go and see it. I'm sure you'll love it.

All photos are stunning, despite the fact that cameras still can't catch it all. The pictures achieved their purpose - I want to go to Lumiere so bad now that I researched about the festival and I plan on going to the next event. Thank you for capturing it and sharing with us :)
One particular photo stood out to me with its catchy composition - the flying man who almost catches the plain. Gorgeous!
