Chasing Firework

Almost every night of last week, London's night sky was lit up with gleaming fireworks in remembrance of Guy Fawkes night on 5th of Nov 1605. Needless to say, shooting fireworks is one of my favourite moments to capture light streaks during the night, hence in this occasion I went to three firework displays across London. I have taken this year's shots with Panasonic 20mm lens mounted on Olympus OMD E5 body and mini Gorilla Tripod. I have tried shooting with various settings but I particularly liked the shots captured with narrow aperture F14-16 and slow shutter speed at low ISO. I have also attached few of my photos from last year's Bonfire night using Tokina mounted on Canon Dslr body, this just to compare the quality of the shots produced by the light weight mirrorless system camera to a jumbo Dslr camera system. To me, the difference is indistinct. I hope you will enjoy the photos :)

Beautiful pictures!!!

Great shots Jena. The last time I successfully photographed fireworks was 25 years ago (before Dslr) as a photojournalist for a small newspaper. It seemed easier capturing on film! Still practicing getting the hang of it on my D90. Thanks for sharing your info. It will be very helpful.
