I am thankful to bring you our video night shoot for the Thursday hop with Brian. Why finally, and why thankful?
Well, the movie was shot in October 2018 which is Spring here in New Zealand and it’s now February 2019, high Summer with the cicadas singing like mad things outside.
Our Video Event
The popular exhibit High Light took place at Riddiford Gardens in Lower Hutt. It was a show with a difference.

At High Light, the sculptures are all meant to light up, shimmer or glow in different ways. Recording this is a challenge for a smartphone movie maker. I have not shot at night before to this was a gamble and an adventure.
The usual rules about a video maker having enough light don’t apply. Night photography and video after dark need a new approach and different expectations.
Smartphone Movie Challenge
Check out the movie to see if you think I have captured the atmosphere.
