Fairly sure you shouldn’t play with fireworks indoors but it was raining. Only had two that I found in a cupboard earlier, and they must have been really old as they fizzed rather than sparkled.
Net result was that I managed to balls up the exposure (they were seriously underexposed) so any editing has seriously degraded the IQ. Tried something different on this one – Created loads of layers and rotated each one a bit…… Might work for star trails but not so good with sparklers indoors…….
Had literally 5 minutes where I didn’t want to think about work so decided to have a play. No doubt this has been done a million times by a million photographers and has a million slightly different takes. No original though went into this whatsoever.
Technically far from perfect, and could do with more PP but hey – five minutes is five minutes.
At some point I’ll detail what I did but haven’t got time now…….
Took a hell of a lot longer to stitch these than I thought it would and by no means a proper job. Learnt a few hard lessons on the way to the end result here, the most important of which would be – DON’T MOVE THE CAMERA AT ALL when shooting with this in mind.
Also learnt a lot about masking and layers in Photoshop so not all a total loss. Will be replacing this one with a more considered and better edit as soon as I have a few hours spare !!!
Needless to say that come the finish the socks were consigned to the dustbin
These litt;e things are really annoying when you’re trying to relax, in the sun in your garden. Can hear them all over the place but never see where they are. This one ended up jumping onto a sunbed and obligingly sat there till I got the camera out.
