Behind the cameraAs you probably expected, another fireworks photo for today. I have taken quite a few I want to edit and share with you :) The fireworks this year in Budapest were really stunning, and I think quite different that the ones from last year. They just were a little problematic to capture in photos, as they created a lot of smoke, and were not consistent. What I mean, they changed a lot between very bright and not so bright explosions. So I had to change the camera settings very often, and it was very hard to get a nice exposure. But luckily, the RAW files can get a lot of info, and can correct for a lot :)

Same with this photo. It would be probably better with a little shorter exposure time, as it ended up being quite busy, but I still like it. It’s a single exposure edited in Lightroom, Oloneo Photoengine and Photoshop.

I’m also including a behind the scenes photo, so you can see where I was standing while taking this. It was actually in the middle of a hill, so I had to be very careful not to just roll down :)
