#15 Photograph Fireworks

Posted on Updated on

This week I pulled #15 from the Lightbox Photography Cards set. “This is a tough challenge, but it doesn’t have to be a big show. Go out and get some sparklers, a tripod and a remote release and experiment till your heart’s content.” I pulled this card and thought, “where am I gonna get fireworks, it’s August?!? and ‘sparklers’ are definitely out of the question in bone-dry California.” Instead, I went with Nature’s Fireworks. It was the annual Perseid Meteor Showers and found my opportunity in the night sky last week.

    how long was the exposure? Fstop? How did you compensate for the earth rotation on the long exposure? Nice pics.

      I set my camera on continuous bursts for about 20-25 minutes 30 sec @ 1.4 ISO 1600
