November Fireworks 2014

It was a little early this year, but the 5th of November falls mid-week so we had the convenience of the weekend to enjoy the annual display. This one, again, occurs at St Albans, and is probably the biggest organised display in the South. I used my Nikon D600 for most of these, it being a better performer in low light. I took a few shots with the EM-5 out of curiosity, and they weren't at all bad. But above all, I wanted to enjoy the spectacle with my own eyes, so photography took a back seat after a while.Once again, I used a shutter speed of 1/30 secs and an aperture of F/2.8, the maximum aperture on both the Tokina 11-16 F/2.8 and the Olympus 12-40 F/2.8.Hope you enjoy the fireworks too.

Great images

Great shots. I'm planning to try some firework shots on NYE. What ISO setting were you using with the EM5 at 1/30s and f2.8?

Alpha Whiskey PhotographyDec 8, 2014 03:17 AM

I set the max ISO to 1600 and most of them where around that value. If the firework was particularly bright the camera would choose a lower value.
Cheers :)
