Trip Report – Light City Baltimore

Light City Baltimore is a new event in downtown Baltimore, Maryland, featuring light based art installations, musical acts and theatrical performances. The event ran for a full week from March 28th – April 3rd.  The main feature of the event was the Light Art Walk located around the Inner Harbor which included a number of light based art installations.  In between were several stages for musical and theatrical performances.  Here’s a few of my favorites from this year:

LightWave – Baltimore’s Beacon:

Antique Baltimore Police Department Patrol Car:

Community Beacons – Making Waves:


Projected Aquaculture:

Theatre of Fire:


The shooting conditions were challenging with brightly lit art outside in the dark, and I found the balance between including the surrounding context and avoiding over exposing the art difficult.  Most of my best shots occurred during sunset or blue hour when the balance in exposure between the two could be found.  Fortunately the event seemed to be a success, so hopefully I’ll have another chance to shoot it next year.
