  1. Oh wow, I didn’t realize they lit up the opera house in colored lights and patterns at night. Lovely shots here. Do you have any tips for doing night photography with bright lights?

    1. Hello Kim, Thanks for your comment. Yes, Sydney celebrates the vivid light festival each year from the end of May to beginning of June for 2 weeks. It is spectacular and very popular. Some tips for shooting at night: For the opera house photo I selected an ISO of 1,250 as the patterns were moving, so I needed to freeze the action; Aperture of F 5.0 and shutter speed of 0.5sec. The harbour bridge photos settings were different. No moving patterns, so I could use a slow shutter speed of 32 sec, ISO 100 and aperture of F.11 as I wanted the bridge to be very sharp and the ocean looking smooth. Happy shooting:) I hope you can visit Sydney’s vivid show next year.

    1. Well spotted. We had a work function at the Museum of Contemporary art on the top balcony. From 6pm we were meant to network with our accounting clients but all I could think of was networking with my camera:)
