Light Changes over the Riviera Theatre

May 16, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Blue hour photographs are popular for a good reason. Unlike daytime, they allow artificial illumination to come through boldly. And unlike pitch black night they provide depth to the photograph. The often yellow illumination also stands our wonderfully against a dark blue background. For me, capturing urban photographs during blue hour is enjoyable not only because of the possible outcomes but also because it gives me a chance to see time pass. Shortly after sunset, everything seems to speed up. The transition from daylight to the blackness of the night happens rather quickly, and minute by minute one can see quite pronounced differences.

This evening I found my way to the Riviera Theatre in North Tonawanda (north of Buffalo, NY). While the rain held off until the night and I could not add to my Theaters in the Rain series I still enjoyed watching the light in transition above the beautifully restored marquee - what a beauty! Often, I share only the final outcome of my photo outings with my selection. Today, I'd like to give you an idea about what I mean by saying that the light balance changes very quickly.
