Floriade Night Fest - P.O.T.D 28/09/2014

Every year during this period of time, Canberra is hosting its annual flower show, Floriade, This year, I decided to try out their Night Fest and see how it would look in the dark. 

This photo was taken with the 24-70 f/2.8 lens and the settings were 3 minutes shutter speed at f/2.8 and ISO 400. I probably should have used a smaller aperture with lower ISO but I was pressing for time, so that's the compromise that I have made at the end. Nevertheless, it was a very different experience to enjoy a flower show at night. It was definitely challenging to photograph with the constantly changing and coloured light but I think it is still a great event to go to if you are around Australia.
