Day 64 of 365 – “Works of Fire”

It was the final day of Vancouver’s Celebration of Light, so I finally made it down there to take pictures.

Seeing as I was going to be down there for the entire day, I didn’t want to lug my tripod around with me so I brought my gorilla pod thing. Gorilla pod? is that what it’s called? …anyway, I figured that would be perfectly suitable for stilling the camera to get some long exposures. I didn’t think about the fact that the camera would be so low to the ground and I likely won’t be able to get a clear shot. It turned out ok, I attempted some shots using the “black card” technique. It worked really well for the shots that weren’t completely over exposed in the centre of the blasts (there were a lot of those). This is one of the shots using 30 second shutter speed and covering my lens with the cap intermittently.
