These are my first “not bad”  fireworks photos. What makes it hard for me to plan good shots is I lack experience and commonsense. I also never know where to point my camera as I don’t know who are the people that will sacrifice animal sanity, and part of their Christmas bonus to have a good time.

Both photos were taken using a tripod and the camera set on Bulb mode. The shutter was controlled using a cable shutter release and the duration of the exposure was based on gut feeling.  I should have used ISO 200 or even 100.

  1. LMAO @ “sacrifice animal sanity”. My dog went mad according to my pops, but I really dunno how he could tell since that dog is crazy on a daily basis.

    HAPPY NEW DECADE TO YOU AKA!!!! 🙂

  2. Lovely shots, akalol! The top one is breathtaking! You obviously have a great vantage point – and more skill than you let on, of course. 😉

    Happy New Year!

  3. Happy New Year aka! I saw the New Year come in from the seawall in Guyana…a fairly isolated section since everyone was closer to the fireworks. Afterwards I thought I should have dragged my tripod out to try (try who knows what?)…but there’s always next time 🙂 until then I’ll be grateful for those like you with the skills.
