Sparks. by meL-xiNyi Sparks. by meL-xiNyi
Surprise fireworks at Darling Harbour, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Testing out friend's DSLR. Very difficult handheld. Pretty much all shots turned out shocking! :S

All comments & critique are greatly appreciated.

Wuuuh, how do you do that? I find it hard to shoot city lights and for example fireworks because I have to do setting adjustments with ISO and such and I can't get it right. I cant get the colours pop into a dark background. As if I wanted to take pictures of stars or the moon.
This pic is really pretty, I cant believe how straight the lines are xD

haha the settings of the camera should be on the right of the description ~ I was lucky I guess.. I trial lots of different combinations of settings.

I like to shoot city lights... hmm.. wher eis that photo... [link] or [link]

i'm a giant noob... and i didn't hav ea tripod.. so just attempted to balance it..

now that I have my own DSLR + borrowing my dad's tripod... I would like to go out to the city again and experiment :)

They are both really pretty!
I'm a ginormous noob too.. thats why I only try a lot of settings and see how it goes and then I forgot which buttons I fumbled with xD.. Aah so forgetful and dont really know the buttons that good..
Anyway I'd love to try and take pics like that.. So.. set shutter speed.. And ISO is quite low, so.. Aperture, I dont know what is but Ill find the button!

aperture...
you have Av mode? that is aperture priority...
like F3.5 or 5.6 or whatever.. if you want to focus on a particular object (e.g. a cup) and make the background blurry, a lower number (i.e. 3.5 or lower) is best :) :)
