This past weekend was the Canadian, or at least English Canada, Victoria Day Weekend. A long weekend where we open the cottage, drink booze, and shoot off fireworks. A good weekend if you can get it. I was at a friends house warming party and after consuming a few wobbly pops we decided to light off a few fireworks. We wandered to a nearby park and set stuff up. Or tried to. Point of note with regards to cameras. Taking pictures of fireworks can be difficult. Here are the best pictures that I took. And no, alcohol was not a factor. Trying to focus on something moving really fast, really close, late at night is not a good thing.
The roman candle fell over when I took this one. Not my fault.
Exposure and shutter speed are tricky.
Not to mention making sure you are aiming at the right location. As you can see, nope, not this time.
At least I was able to get a cool effect after with all the smoke and haze, trees, and light involved.
I will have to work on this project another time.
