Every year our local botanical garden holds a “GardenFest of Lights” and it has become a tradition for our family to go. Every year I attempt to take photos and I’m never really thrilled with out they come out. We go at night of course so the only thing illuminating anything are the millions of little lights – which sounds like it would be awesome for photographs; however, photographing people without a flash is a bit of a challenge. When I do get faces, they are typically all sorts of crazy colors – and not really in a cool way. I turned all of my images from last night to black and white because I feel like the mood created by b&w is closer to what I’m going for. I kinda like the results.
