As always, comments, critique, etc, always appreciated...
awesome shots. love the colors against the night sky.
Amazing photos! Wish mine would turn out that good. Nice job!
i love the fireworks photos! Where are they taken? Reminds me of the HSBC celebration of lights I saw many years ago at Vancouver, BC sitting at English Bay.
When was this taken?
Taken at the Esquimalt Lagoon, Victoria for the Canadian Naval Centennial celebration.
These are great. Were you shooting these in bulb, or experimenting with different speeds? Focused to infinity?
Thanks - I was using my stock formula for fireworks: All settings (including focus) on manual. Lens focused and confirmed at infinity, aperture f8 (or thereabouts) and shutter-speed generally between 2 and 3 seconds (depending on the nature of the fireworks; most of these are 2.5 seconds).
Nice, I just wrote an article on fireworks. Care if I link to your post here? Or if you want, would you care to leave a comment at the article with this stock formula that works for you?
