It was late and suddenly the sky lit up with colors. The crackers snapped and banged for a few minutes. Lucky as the photo gear was set up nearby. A few twist and turns on the ball head got me these shots. Of course I had to drag the cam and tripod out on the balcony.

Captured with Canon EOS 7D, tripod, remote shutter release and processed with Lightroom 3.

Happy Holidays!

A 10 MINUTE DISPLAY

In the Philippines the holiday season is celebrated through get together of big families, long home made buffet spreads, last minute gift shopping and massive traffic jams that would put New York and Tokyo to shame. But 1 thing that never quits are the fireworks display.

This was shot a few weeks ago when a department store chain wanted to give it’s shoppers something else to revel in. My gear was on a sturdy tripod with remote shutter attached. Lens used was a Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L-yup, the old one that’s without IS and it’s still sharp as nails. Photos were shot on RAW, processed in DPP and finished in Photoshop.

Have a great weekend, folks!

PYROMANIACS ON NEW YEARS EVE: PART 2

Make sure to take a look at Part 1 on Week-Ender #22.

It was a war zone over the skies of Metro Manila. Even past new years eve I were still pushing the shutter on the remote.

Somehow, the fireworks seemed to have lessened this year. Due to the economic weather, perhaps or tickets on budget airlines have just been way too affordable as of late.

Nevertheless, the skies still filled with heavy haze at around 2am on January 1, 2010.

PYROMANIACS ON NEW YEARS EVE: PART 1

The fireworks display on new years eve in Manila is a sight in itself. An hour or two before midnight, half the households in the city are showing off their own purchase.

Shooting on a tripod starts way before the new years eve countdown. Wait too long and the sky is filled with smoke

One of my favorite photos is the one all the way on the bottom. I was on the very edge of a building and one exploded very very… very near. And just in time I hit the shutter while I started to turn my back to the powder igniting the space in front of the lens. So close that I felt a plastic cap from a cardboard tube that contains explosive powder hit my back. Good thing no equipment or persons were damaged.

Stay tuned for Part 2.
