Took about 200 fireworks shots. But it was really more than that if you think about how I did it. Had the ISO on 100. F stop was 22. Camera was in bulb mode. I would hit the shutter with the remote (and keep it pressed until I had what I wanted) to activate the shutter. When the fireworks did what I wanted, I would cover the end of the lens with a black card to keep out any unwanted light. Then when another would go off, pull the card out of the way and repeat as much as I wanted. It is like compositing if you will but done all in camera without PS.

Pete, neat shots and a very creative way to get multiple exposures of fireworks in one image. :thumbup:

Nice shots Pete. Interesting technic for multiple exposures.

Thanks Tom. That is one of the cool things about night (dark ) photography. You can have the shutter pressed indefinitely as long as there is no light entering and you will have just a black photo. But once you enter light, it is permanent.


Here are a couple quick videos. I know ,the camera was slanted. It was a last minute thing. People starting to show and get setup for the show and a couple fireworks.

There were a couple who wanted to see more of the B&W fireworks I did on another forum. So, I thought I would also put them here while I was at it

Pete, I think the black and white images are very interesting - thanks for sharing them, particularly the multiple exposure ones :thumbup: . Makes me want to go back and look at some of my old fireworks images.

I like your photos and this 52 week plan seems to be a good idea to learn and get out of slump.
