Winterheat in Civic Park
The third part of Winterheat 2012 was held in Civic Park tonight. What better opportunity to get some interesting shots?
The Cultural Centre-Captain Cook Fountain-City Hall axis works well at night, especially with the extra pyrotechnics. (and no Laman St. fig trees).
I tried for about an hour (without much luck) to get some decent candid people shots. It was pretty busy and hard to be inconspicuous, so most of my intended ‘candid’ shots failed, with the subject instead staring at me with a ‘why-is-he-pointing-that-camera-at-me’ face. I was going round in circles chasing shots, and eventually got fed up and instead stood in one spot and let the shots come to me.
An event like this is probably most fun for the kids.
It was cold for Newcastle, but warm enough for people to have fun with a snow machine.
As always, young kids make great subjects, especially with lighting such as this.
