Grand Hall Light Show at Union Station Hotel

https://youtu.be/utHwPszShJw

The Grand Hall 3D Light Show at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel is awesome and a must see. Multiple projectors fixed on the hotel’s beautiful 65-foot vaulted ceiling makes the old train station come alive with award winning imagery by Techno Media.

HISTORY
The first train pulled into Union Station on September 2, 1894. The highest traffic was during WWII and the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair…more at source: stlouisunionstation.com/about.

PHOTOGRAPHY
The show was photographed 800 times with a  14mm wide-angle lens on a Sony A camera. The photos were then added as a sequence using Premiere Pro, the Adobe Creative Cloud movie editor. The music was added in post production provided by Epidemic Sound.

Shows run on the hour from 5pm-10pm daily.

Veterans Day Soldiers’ Memorial Military Museum

The Soldiers’ Memorial Military Museum was photographed on Veterans Day in honor for all who have served.

A 14mm wide-angle Rokinon lens was used which warps photos a bit. The warping can be fixed in lightroom, Photoshop and other photo editors but most of the time I leave the distortion in.

The Soldiers’ Memorial Military Museum is owned by the City of St. Louis operated by the Missouri Historical Society.

Pagoda Circle Forest Park

The Pagoda Circle and Nathan Frank Bandstand was built in 1925 with white marble and concrete. The roof is made from copper and the railings bronze.

The video is a timelapse taken during sunrise on Halloween 2018. A 14mm 2.8 lens was used with 2 second exposures. Fall in Forest Park is sensational and the colors are bold and beautiful.

This Pagoda is one of Forest Park’s Icon located across from the Muny Opera House, an outside colosseum for live plays and musicals during the Summer months.

The floral arrangements and plants that surround the Pagoda are maintained by The Flora Conservancy of Forest Park in concert with the City of St. Louis.

Forest Park – Fall Tree Colors

Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park during the Fall turns trees into beautiful colors. My favorite place is the tree-covered trail with trees that turn a bright and deep red.

The video features the tree-covered sidewalk and the Apotheosis of Saint Louis statue located in front of the Museum.
