    Thanks Ckiang for sharing with us the locations and your images. Hmm... so no other places ah? I've been to those locations over the last few years... Got some shots a bit similar to yours also. This year, think I'm going to give it a miss. Cos I find the foreground really very uninteresting...almost all black. Sigh.. they should think of us photographers and start early! Hee-hee... Anyway, for those who are trying it the first time round, have fun! For me, nah... sian liao.

    I am interested in taking pictures of the fireworks, but I have the tickets to the preview tomorrow. I wonder how easy it would be to set up the tripod to take a picture of the fireworks?

    Have anybody tried doing that in the stadium itself?

    In the first place, are we allowed to move freely around the stadium to take pictures?

    nopes. u cant move around. u'll be pretty much stuck within ur gallery area.
    and u cant choose where to sit either... u'll be directed to ur seats when u go in... cant choose. and if ur thinking of setting up tripod... well... gonna be hard... not exactly a lot of room where u sit.

    Oh no .... if that's the case, don't feel like going to the preview already

    My sentiments precisely. Surely where there's a will, there's a way?

    Uh, I've never been to any of the NDP celebrations before. They DO allow cameras right?

    you can bring cameras in...
    and i suppose u get some leeway to move around when fireworks come up...
    but dont expect them to let u set up a tripod in the middle of a walkway.

    Default ....some tips based on experience.....

    Hi All...

    For the Fireworks photo.....let sat if you have a consumer tripod(the non pro type) which are generally light ......a good method to further stabilize the camera during the BULD photography is to bring along a slingbag/ pouch loaded with something (any personal stuff which may make the pouch be a weight) .

    Then hang this bag on your lens and let it hang down. This will help keep reduce vibration and shakes.

    For the dark object cover, a good simple one would be a BLACK CAP....like those baseball ones.

    Some caps can retain their shape when taken off and use the interior of the head portion. Or if the cap is the limp type, you can use the VISOR part which is normally BLACK,MATTED and Comfortable enough to hold.

    Here is a weblink which i just created after writing the message above....(i'm sure there would be people who "Catch no ball - on what i'm try to say)....- here is the link....
    - Basic Equipment for a Fireworks Photography Outing -

    try out......and have fun
