Miami by night takes on a very different character than Miami by day. As impressive as the Art Deco architecture of Miami’s South Beach is during the daylight hours, it dons a very different costume past the crepuscular hour and becomes a dizzying concoction of dancing neon lights and soft glows that entice the passerby to come closer and explore the usually invisible interiors, and to see Miami in a whole new way. The squat, broad-leafed palm trees and azure sky stop being the centre of attention, and life begins to swirl and blossom in a profusion of delectable tones that make you want to capture a piece of it to take home.
Night time photography is always an interesting challenge as low light levels and flashing bright lights can tax even the best of equipment, and the most proficient of photographers. But it’s a challenge I enjoy and launch into with concerted enthusiasm, ever trying to capture the magical glow that I’m seeing at that moment.
