Playing With Fire(works)

Disclaimer : Not literally playing with fireworks! I would strongly suggest against that – it would be very dangerous!


I know fireworks night was a little while ago now, but these are some photos I took from the night. We as a family didn’t have any spectacular thing to celebrate, but we did find a couple of sparklers and indoor fountains (which we actually lit outside).

For these photos I used a slightly longer than normal exposure (very technical language I know) which got the sparks streaking out of the fountain. The glow around it captures the shapes and burnished colours of the leaves.

These next two photos where of my sister using a sparkler to draw things. I used a very long exposure time to capture these light streaks. I love this method of photographing light. You see this a lot, probably because it’s so easy to achieve great results.

Hope you all had a great fireworks night UK guys, maybe some of you have snapped shots of fireworks? I’d love to see them!
