I wanted to share attempt #2 of fireworks photography. This time was more of an impromptu display, catching the Pittsburgh Pirate’s infamous SkyBlast while leaving Stage AE last week.
In other words, I was stuck without my tripod and remote.
Trying to avoid camera shake was a challenge, but one I was well aware of before I started. I tried to combat it by using a shutter speed of only 1 second (as opposed to 3 -5 I was using with the tripod), and propping my elbows along the parking garage’s 9th floor balcony.
Which worked out ok, I got a few good images from a very large batch. But let’s just say I’m not parting with my tripod and remote any time soon …
