Lumagination of Buffalo Botanical GardensBuffalo, NY A friend tipped me off about the 2017 Lumagination event at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. Otherwise, I would have almost certainly missed it. Having recently photographed the gardens at dusk getting a different, blue hour look, was very appealing. But of course, illumination is one of the two main ingredients of blue hour shots.
The window of opportunity was somewhat short and I hopped on the opportunity promptly to make sure I would not show a day after the event's end.
The roofs looked beautiful, radiant with color. As the day started turning into night, the color potential was definitely there. The main question became the composition. I really liked the familiar angled perspective you can see in the first photo here, however, at the same time I wanted to capture the whole building with the prominent central dome as well as both of the wings.
There was no avoiding the crowds waiting to get inside, however, the long 30-second exposure I used blurred them out a bit making them less significant and more of an illustration, which I thought actually contributed to the story here - people anxious to see the 2017 Lumagination.
