Red and green fireworks

Let’s do one more photo from the St. Stephens fireworks today. Originally I wanted to do an article today, but in the end, got a bit busy and those take more time. So instead, just a new photo. For this one, I have chosen one with bit more different colors, green and red. Actually, there were many of those there, as green, red and white are the colors of the Hungarian flag.

Even more fireworks

Let’s do one more fireworks shot. This one was taken close to the finish of the fireworks show when they were many explosions at once. I quickly had to change the camera settings, as they were so bright, all my shots were coming out very overexposed. Actually, when I take fireworks photos, I change the settings often, based on how the photos I’m getting looks like.

Fireworks over the Danube in Budapest

Fireworks over Danube in BudapestAs I mentioned yesterday, let’s do another photo of the St. Stephen’s Day fireworks today. I really had a great view, to see all of them at once. Maybe just form the castle to the left would be a nicer view. But it’s really hard to get a good spot there. The number of people in the city was huge, and a lot of spots are closed off during the fireworks.

Even the spot I got, under the Citadel, was only by luck. I got there 2 hours before the fireworks, and from my experience, that should have been enough. But to my surprise, the area was already full of people with cameras and tripods. Only by pure luck, a lady was leaving from this spot and I managed to put my tripod there. Next time I’m going even earlier.

St. Stephen’s day fireworks 2019

I have not posted anything yesterday, but I did go to Budapest in the evening, to try and get some photo of the St. Stephnen’s day fireworks over the city. And as you can see, I got some. So today, and the next few day’s I will post photo I got there.

This year I decided to go up to the Citadel over the city, to be able to see the whole show. Usually, the fireworks are fired off from 4 locations, but this year, they were done from 9. 7 boats and two bridges. They were really cool and I really enjoyed them. I did though overexposed a lot of photos, as they were crazy bright. Much brighter than I expected. Still looked good.

Autumn light

Don’t have any new photo, so here goes one from my archives, that I only edited recently. This one is taken in the Autumn of 2014, from under the SNP bridgge in Bratislava. I was still on the 5D mark II at that time. One good thing about shooting RAW photos, you can edit them anytime later, and still get good results. Sometimes even better as the editing software gets better with time too.

This is a blend of 4 exposures, done in Photoshop.
