Night View of Vancouver's BC Place Stadium #VantagePoint

The False Creek area has one of the most beautiful cityscape views in Vancouver, BC. It's free to explore as well. It is my all time favourite place to take a walk and do some photography. We (hubby and I and our little one) went out there one night for some night photography.


There are times that whenever I drive past by that area, I wished that I had my DSLR camera with me to capture the view in different angles. Or that I wished I had a compact camera with DSLR quality that I can carry anywhere with me in my pocket. There is a small camera out there that is powerful enough for low light and amazingly high-megapixel quality. I was recently introduced to The Light L16 Camera, developed by Light.co, I had to check it out and learn more about it. I am also thrilled to be part of their #VantagePoint Project.

I was at Creekside Park when I took the night photo of BC Place Stadium just across from False Creek. This "vantage point" provides the scenic view of the water reflection and architecture that looks amazing both during the day and night. That night, BC Place lit up blue. Other days, it would be red, purple, or event multi-colored to match a theme color of a particular event. Beside us to the left (not seen in photograph) would the Science World dome, another iconic landmark in Vancouver. The above photograph was taken at f22, 25-sec exposure and ISO 600 with camera set on a tripod.

I also do event photography. As an event photographer, I really enjoy what I do. I have captured many moments of each event activities and people's expressions and my clients love it.

That's pretty cool! Though, the water is a bit blurry and not quite tack-sharp. Probably just 'cause it's in motion and naturally blurs due to the changing shape of the surface / reflections. No worries...

Can't wait for the L16 to finally hit production in July... (Or for Expanded Beta to loop in more Pre-Order holders. *Hint, hint...*)

For anyone interested in learning more about the Light L16, I think these are some of the best videos / interviews I've unearthed to date:
