By 2014 I am still very happily shooting SFS with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 but I also have an HTC ONE phone loaded with Instagram, Snapseed and VSCO; I can pull shots from the memory card of the Fuji onto the Phone and edit them right-there, right-then and I do! Well a couple anyway (as it's USB not Bluetooth or wireless) at the Lord Nelson Hotel over a pint of Nelsons ale.. But I have already posted to Instagram a shot from inside the Blue installation, Cellular Tessellation using a shot from the phone itself. I am well aware I have almost missed the Instagram boat but I am determined to catch up! #vividsydney Actually so obsessed with the new social media, this is the first blog post of my shots of Vivid 2014.Mouse over images for details.

Curiously, although Vivid launched in 2009 with Brian Eno as part of the creative team; 2012 seems to have been the year it really kicked off, and I can't seem to find anything about the time span in between. So it could well be that I have been in the thick of it; most happily since the beginning(ish). And since you can see what pretty much everyone does at Vivid by checking out Instagram #VividSydney or the annual Flickr groups, one certainly gets a feeling for how one is doing photographing the show.
They say it's easy photographing a beautiful woman; she is already beautiful, you just need to push the button. But in an age of Digital Auto Everything, it is interesting to see how your pictures compare.. Vivid is a lot like a beautiful woman, but not everyone sees her or photographs her the same way. I am looking forward to the 2015 edition of Vivid Sydney!
