First things first – I’m back! It has been exactly one month since my last post as I’ve been all sorts of busy (getting married and being away on our minimoon!). It was also a good excuse to disconnect for a bit and come back refreshed with lots of ideas and enthusiasm for the new posts I have lined up.
To get the ball rolling again we have an absolutely spectacular video from Luke Shepard, Nightvision.
It’s hard to believe that each of these is a still image and not a continuous video clip, the whole thing is stunningly captured as thousands of images all stabilised and edited together.
Nightvision is a celebration of the “brilliance and diversity of architecture found across Europe” and took Luke a full three months to capture all the images. Spread over 36 cities in 21 countries the video is a nod to “some of the greatest European structures”, showing them off in a “new and unique way”.
The video struck very close to me in particular. My job as a lighting designer requires spending time researching and sourcing inspiration, particularly looking at architecture and how we can enhance and complement buildings and such through the medium of light once the sun has gone down. Accentuating different features, illuminating different aspects, and using different colours and colour temperatures of light across each of these elements.
