We made the trip into Atlanta To visit the Atlanta Botanical Gardens to see the Garden Lights, Garden Nights display.
The light display, atmosphere, and music is incredible, well worth the trip.
Taking pictures of the lights is difficult because of the great contrast between the lights and everything else so shooting in manual mode and trying to get the exposure right so that the lights are not blown out, bright white, loss of color, and the shadows aren’t solid black. Once you find the settings it can make for some beautiful pictures although the beauty of the experience can not be fully captured with pictures.
If you are going to take pictures of the people that are with you. You will want to bring a flash and small diffuser to light them up.
