Guy Fawkes Night (also known as Fireworks Night or Bonfire Night) is an annual celebration on the evening of 5 November. It marks the downfall of the Gunpowder Plot of 5 November 1605, in which a number of Catholic conspirators, including Guy Fawkes, attempted to destroy the Houses of Parliament, in London, United Kingdom.
They had the bonfire night on Saturday, 7 November. There was one near the park which I always go, but then, I got lazy to go out haha. It’s getting colder these days 😦 I want to keep myself warm 😛
Anyway, since it was near, I still could see the firework from my window 😛
I think, I posted some photos of firework last year before my blog (adila.com.my) gone for good. Well, that was when I was using Canon IXUS, pretty much what I took was, crappy photos 😛
err not that I’ve mastered ways to take firework photos now haha; I totally didn’t prepare anything for the firework shot since I didn’t plan to shot any this year 😦
oh well, hopefully there’s next time
I’ve just gone through some tutorials on capturing fireworks; and I must say, I totally did things the other way round lol
I handheld it, obviously I set the shutter speed to fast (I like sharp and crisp photos) and high ISO 1600(how I wish I could take 5 photos per second instead of just 3 haha) 3 shots is the limit for Nikon d60.
That was how I took my photos; the advice from magazines are.. use low ISO 200, lower the shutter speed (make sense.. you want the trail of the firework!) and use a tripod! 😛 too bad that I only read those after the event hehe oh well~
Anyway, here are some photos 🙂 I wish I could get the timing right. Next time, next time.. hehe
More photos can be seen from my facebook album: Random
I took like.. around 100+ photos haha; I had a hard time choosing a few of my best shots lol – ceit! tak keluar rumah pun ter’accidentally took tons of photos
