Fireworks over Niagara Falls

A few of us from the Niagara Falls Camera Club decided to brave the throngs of tourists on a Sunday evening in July and this is one of the products of that outing.

Shooting fireworks like this is relatively easy. Set the camera on a tripod, compose your image and manually focus on infinity. Using your Bulb (B) setting, f8, ISO 100, hold the shutter open for as long as you want (a cable release works best for this). This is trial and error of course but the bursts happen randomly and are of different brightnesses. This one was 4 seconds, but I have others at 1 second and others yet at 15 seconds.

It’s been a while since I posted. I shot this last night. I realize it may be dark, but I like the moody, painterly look of it. Photographed at the Niagara Falls Botanical Gardens.

This is a photo of a hanging basket taken at the Niagara Falls Camera Club outing this past week, where several of my images of the Niagara Skywheel were taken along with yesterday’s self portrait.  This is a gimicky technique of using a long shutter speed and zooming the lens during the exposure.  I think it works well for this photo as the Tivoli lights are obviously showing the zoom but many of the other objects still seem to be stationary.

Niagara Skywheel

This is a photo of the Niagara Skywheel in Niagara Falls, Canada.  I shot this last week on an outing with the Niagara Falls Camera Club to Clifton Hill.  The Ferris wheel is 183′ tall but with the help of a 10mm lens I was able to get most of the wheel in very close without too many obstructions.
