Plaza Lights Photo Shoot

The holidays are right around the corner, and I was very excited for the lights to be switched on at the Country Club Plaza. I've never photographed them, so I wanted to take a stab at it this year. I went out on three seperate nights to capture the lights right after they switch on and right after the sun goes down. Its a very small window of time to get the perfect balance of beautiful blue sky vs. the bright lights, so I couldn't get all 3 locations shot in the same evening, so I had to do it in stages. I first did a pedestrian level shoot, wandering around through the crowds in the middle of the lights. The next shoot was across Brush Creek to get the lights from afar. Then for the final shoot I went up on top of a parking garage to get a more birds eye view. Here are some of my favorites, please enjoy!
