    Default New Year Fireworks Pictures

    Hi all,
    Hope its ok if I start this.

    Just wanted to start a thread to post your fireworks pics here.

    Managed to get some while trying out the black-card method suggested by:
    http://hanjies.blogspot.com/2010/03/...fireworks.html

    Took this from my office at The Central 24th floor. Unfortunately, did not realize the firing was blocked by Riverwalk Apartment. Managed to salvage some by shifting to a new position within the office.

    Pictures did not turn out as spectacular as I hoped. But still looked pretty good for first time trying out this method.
    Would need to find more opportunities to try out black-card photography.
    All photos not yet PP-ed.

    I used Bulb mode, aperture f/10 and lowest ISO. Set it up on tripod and pre-focus to infinity. Used a wireless remote (happened to purchase one together with the 18-55WR that I used for this shot) to open and close the shutter. Used a lens cap from fren's Canon 17-40 EF which had a bigger diameter than my 18-55.
    I used the cap to cover the lens during portions where the fireworks are too bright and may cause overexposure or when the smoke has not yet dissapated.
    In retrospect I realized there were some periods where I chose to cover the lens and uncover during the wrong moments. Also should have used a more appropriate zoom as opposed to wide zoom.
    But this was my first time and using a method I never tried before. Guess would look forward to my opportunites to try it out.
