I had a fun evening at a village bonfire party this weekend. I wanted to photograph the fireworks with some light trails but knew that it would be tricky.

I did some research beforehand and went armed with my tripod. For the fireworks I put my camera on the tripod and set it to manual. For clarity I set the ISO to 100, the aperture to around F8 and I played around with shutter speeds of between 2.5 and 6 seconds.

While I took a few photos where the fireworks filled the frame I also tried to capture some of the atmosphere and other activities that were going on around the field. Perhaps one of these would be a better entry for the ‘Into the Light’ element of the Interpretations assignment?
