Hadn’t planned to take any photos of the actual show – if I had I wouldn’t have been stuck shooting 50mm f/1.1 @ ISO 3200 with no flash… But hey, worth a try!
Decided to have a change & snapsh!t on digital for once, starting with the Biogon.
Week 7, covering the second half of November & through December.
Starting off with an early RAG Week, which of course means a copious number of purple balloons!
It’s RAG week 2014 at St Andrews, so the Ents Crew once again gets to play with thousands of purple balloons (purple is the RAG colour). This year we tried something new & twisted jewel tone (translucent) balloons around strings of (LED) fairy lights – the same way that you twist them around arch line to make an arch. I thought it would be fun to wear my GoPro whilst making one of the lines so here’s the result!
The GoPro unfortunately didn’t pick up the effect with the main lights off at all at the end of the video, but in person it actually looks really pretty & this photo gives a better idea of the beautiful bokeh ball heaven that we created – fairy lights, balloons & f/1.1 is a bokeh whore’s dream :)
