Darkness, Light, Figures and Lanterns

From Dusk to Midnight

Inman Park – Piedmont Park, Atlanta Beltline Parade, 2013.
Olympus e-P2, no flash

This is the second year for Atlanta Street Photography Group’s planned trip to The Beltline Lantern Parade. I had planned to shoot this event with external flash again, but something just felt different.  (Do check out the cool flash images from Greg Fincannon of our group though!)

With my flash back in the bag I approached this event with black and white images in mind, taking advantage of what I could between the ambient light and the hundreds of lanterns and lights in this parade. There are 8 images here from dusk onward.  See if you can guess what the figures are in the first two pictures.
