This was the first night that I have shot Vivid Sydney. My sister is a photo enthusiasts and she had shot the previous Vivid Sydney. I just pick up photography probably 6 months or so before this so everything was new to me.
My sister suggests that the first night we should go around to every spots to see what it like first then seriously photograph each location at a later time. I didn\’t know anything better so I follow her suggestions.
We took the ferry from Pymont to Kirribilii across the haboour and walk back toward the Rocks and Circular Quay. It was free then but like all government services they start to charge once it becomes so popular.
We photograph the Harbour Bridge with the light decorations and you could see the Opera House from the bridge. Yes you can see but it hard to photograph it. If you have a small camera and high ISO capability in the camera then from the bridge you get a different view than most people.
We make our way slowly to Circular Quay and it starts to pouring down. I saw the light and wait for people to walk into the shots. I took a few frame and I knew this was the shot that I wanted. Also my sister shared that every time Vivid Sydney was on, it starts to rain. So a tip prepare for wet weather if you going to photograph Vivid Sydney.
