Vivid - Sydney's Festival of Lights photographed with Camera FV-5 app

My wife really wanted to take my daughter into the city and show her Vivid – that’s the name given to Sydney’s Festival of Lights. I joined in after work, taking with me my Samsung Galaxy S5 with the app called “Camera FV-5”. Thought I might put the latter through its paces at night.

The evening was exactly as I expected – lots of crowds and jostling and stumbling intermixed with wonderful visuals and a showground atmosphere. I am now totally exhausted with sore feet, so will dump the photos here for your enjoyment and head off for bed. But just think, these were done with a phone camera without any fancy Photoshop doing-uppering apart from resizing them. :)

I must admit that the app “Camera FV-5” did a superb job and was easy to use. Many camera apps simply can’t do night-time colour. But this one did it wonderfully.

Also, see if you can identify the pictures of Sydney’s famous Opera House. :)

  1. Great images, I’m just sorry that I couldn’t get down and play with my camera too. Perhaps next year.

    1. Thanks :) I tell you what, the photographers are certainly venturing out in hordes at this Vivid. I should have taken a proper camera, but I was actually stoked with what my little phone was able to achieve with the proper app. :)

  2. These photos are fantastic, Greg! I’m so glad you battled the crowds so we don’t have to. The Opera House birds are so inventive, such great use of the shadows!
