The city of Berne Switzerland offers a cultural event during the advent called “Rendez-vous Bundesplatz” whereby the Federal Palace of Switzerland is the canvas for a breathtaking lightshow – see here for more information.
Below are just a few of the many scenes that are being projected.
The Lightshow was seen by more then 300’000 people in 2011. The two nightly shows gather big crowds making it quite difficult to take decent pictures as you will not get the preferred spot to shoot from ( these are usually taken by folks that come well before you) and you’ll have to shoot over the heads of folks in front of you. Here Lightroom comes in quite handy in the post processing. Not only can you correct exposure settings, white balance (if you photograph in RAW that is), contrast, color settings, do dodge and burn and much more but you can do amazing perspective corrections with ease. Just go to lens corrections, go to the manual tab and adjust the vertical and horizontal setting if you did not have the opportunity to stand straight in front of the building and did have to look up at the building. This sure helped for me 😉
