Photographer's Note

Luxembourg (5/5)

Just kidding with the title. It is because these fireworks were arranged to celebrate Luxembourg and Greater Region becoming the European Capital of Culture in 2007.

My first experience of taking photos of fireworks. Trial and error seems to be the best way to get results so prepare to take lots of shots. Without a tripod I locked the exposure time to 1/20. With short exposures those typical long stripes of fire are missed. But maybe short exposures get closer to the idea of how our own eyes experience it. Or not. Not without bangs, motion and wide open view. Please have a look also at Julia's version.

ISO800. 30 mm at F/11, so this bang was actually quite bright!
