Wacky Fireworks

Sometimes I’m a bit of a photography rebel and like be different from others. Shooting fireworks on Canada Day was no exception. Everyone I know was headed down to Parliament Hill in Ottawa to stake out their viewing spot. At the last minute we decided to go into Kanata and check out the smaller display. It was a bit disappointing compared to my usual exciting time on the Hill, but it served my purposes well, allowing me to get a bit closer to the action.

Using a 50mm lens with the shutter on Bulb mode (Canon 5D Mkiii), I started every shot out of focus and refocused throughout the shot. The shutter was open for about three seconds. Several factors determined how the photo turned out – amount of time the shutter was open, f-stop, and the fireworks themselves.

Here’s a sneak peek at the outcome. You will see some flower-like shapes and some sea-creature types. For more photos, check out my page Wacky Fireworks https://myndsiphotos.wordpress.com/?page_id=969&preview=true
