Fireworks Festival Knokke-Heist - Italy

 

I already have seen a number of firework shows but this one was different. Innovative, surprising and spectacular! They used a crane to shoot fireworks in 360 degrees. Yes, this means also down to ground. In fact they similated a ticking clock.

 

 

TECH-INFO: The EXIF data of the images tells most of it. The key is a very long exposure, here 22 seconds, to get those very long lines. Use a cable release, set your camera in bulb mode and determine the exposure time by looking at the fireworks. When it starts you press the button (on the cable release), and release when you think you have seen enough light. It takes lots of practice to master it.
