Having seen many beautiful photos of fireworks, I have always wanted to shoot fireworks myself. Before I had my DSLR, I have tried once or twice, but never really achieving much.
On Saturday, together with fellow CSers, I went to shoot the closing event for the Singapore Arts Festival 09, Crackers!.
It was my first proper attempt at shooting fireworks, so I was suitably anxious. I didn't have a remote, but a friend lent me hers (It was a spare). In the end the remote didn't work well, so I used the timer instead.
Here are my photos from that evening (In no specific order of appearance) :
#1 - Burst of Light
#2 - Extravaganza
#3 - Blues and Greens I
#4 - Celebrations
#5 - Two Sides
#6 - Blues and Greens II
#7 - Feathers
#8 - Rainbow Lights
#9 - Rings of Fire
#10 - Pyrotechnic Arcs
#11 - Red Sprinkles
#12 - Final Bursts
Overall, it was a great expierence. Although I do wish I could have shot better, I am satisfied with most of the results I got (It's just my first time after all).
Many thanks to Xhui and Ryan for their help and teaching, without which I might not have managed as well as I did :)
Can't wait to shoot more fireworks!
