  • Durham Lumiere

    My first attempt at low light photography at the recent Durham Lumiere event.

    Projector setup on Prebends Bridge projecting morphing geometric images on the trees

    Smoke, Trees and Cathedral


    Interactive projection - the projection changed as a pianist played

    A few more to follow.

          Thanks for the comments guys.

          The first shot was by chance as I couldn't access the end of the bridge directly - it was ticketed from 16:30 - 19:30 but I didn't want to be there later due to crowding- so I used a public footpath to get to the riverside slightly upstream.
          The same view in daylight (2015)

          The mist was very effective, and would have been enhanced with some spooky sounds!

          The piano shot (keys of Light) was very impressive as a whole, the image changing with the piano music.

          One of the best pieces was seeing a whale in the River Wear but as it was continually moving difficult to capture in a still.
