Photo of the Week 176

Photo of the Week 176 Cramer Imaging's professional quality fine art photograph of feathery golden, green, and red fireworks against the sky in Pocatello, Bannock, Idaho Greetings again photography fans.  I know it's Friday and you're ready for that creative break which you so desperately need.  Well, we've got just what the doctor ordered.  Today we've got our featured "Photo of the Week" for your viewing pleasure.  This week it's explosive.

Yes, we do mean explosive in the very literal sense that we're featuring a firework photograph.  The picture won't explode but the subject did.

This golden shower of light sprinkled with color is another one of those successful firework photographs which we came home from a fireworks show with.  However, there's more to it than just that.

Typically, I avoid taking photos of these golden feathery fireworks.  While they make for an amazing display in the sky, I haven't had the best of luck rendering them on metaphorical film.  For some reason, they just don't work for me.  At this show, I decided to try again to see what I got.

Getting the timing down with fireworks is a bit of guess work and a bit of anticipating just when the explosion will happen.  Most firework shots don't turn out the best because my timing was just that little bit off.

With this group, my timing was perfect.  I captured the bursts from start to finish but didn't capture anything I didn't want, such as smoke or extra trails up in the sky.  While I can't help where the fireworks explode relative to me and my camera, I can create photos like this with practice, patience, and by taking lots of shots.

With this shot, the golden shower actually rendered beautifully.  I couldn't believe what I saw when I first looked at it.  It's also appropriately festive given that New Years is just a couple of days away.  Let's light up the sky again with these beautiful bursts of light.
