Abstract Fireworks in Singapore


Here’s a quick post with some photos I took of fireworks in Singapore Chinese New Year 2011. They’re taken with my 5D MkII and 24-105mm Canon lens.

I generally went for a 4 second shutter speed for these shots, with a narrow aperture at F11-22.

With a standard lens as you’ve guessed the photos have somewhat been cropped to give the effect of the fireworks filling the frame.

Amazing fireworks from Chinese New Year celebration in Singapore 2011. 24mm, Aperture: F22, Shutter: 4s, ISO: 400

Abstract Fireworks 2

A slightly different selection of fireworks, still at a 4 second shutter speed to get that great light trail effect. 24mm, Aperture: F11, Shutter: 4s, ISO: 400

These are the shots I felt qualified from the Singapore fireworks photoshoot. It was a very rainy day so we were lucky that it cleared up just in time for midnight. However that meant we didn’t have sufficient time to find the optimal vantage point. I will next year try to spend even more time finding the perfect spot to capture the fireworks in front of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore.
