Hello everyone and Happy New Year!
It has been a quiet year in photography for me, but I made sure to capture some fireworks last night. The colours and sounds were spectacular. I hope you enjoy!
Last weekend I visited the Gertrude Street Projection Festival. It is an annual festival where they use light in different ways to create works of art. A lot of fun! In this post I have included some of my favourite photos from the VW Beetle art work. A projector was shining different patterns onto the car.
I hope your weekend is going well. Until the end of August, Docklands have free Friday night fireworks that go for about 10 minutes from 7pm. I went along last Friday to take some photos.
It was a first time for me taking photos of fireworks, but I think they turned out pretty well!
All of these were taken with my Sony RX100 on a tripod. The manual settings were:
ISO: 125 Aperture: f10 Shutter: 5 sec
Definitely worth photographing fireworks, quite fun!
Last week on our way back from the Gertrude Street Projection Festival, my creativity was sparked when I saw the lighting on the Royal Exhibition Building. I just had to set the tripod up again and get some shots.
I was particularly pleased with the fountain shot below. The backlight created a beautiful glow effect on the water spray coming off the fountain:
ISO: 1600 Aperture: f3.5 Shutter: 1/13
ISO: 1600 Aperture: f4.0 Shutter: 1/15
I have to say night photography and lights are quickly becoming a favourite of mine. I hope you enjoyed 🙂
