Below are my first fireworks shots held in Ski, Akershus NO where my brother-in-law lives. We were celebrating "August party" that time time when a couple told me that in 5 minutes there will be a fireworks display that is going to happen.
"What in five minutes?" I asked in surprise with big tantalizing eyes, charot.
"Yes, actually it's not more than four minutes now before it's going to happen," manang replied.
"So what are we waiting for, let's go out in the veranda and watch it," manong said in a very calm voice.
"Cool, this is gonna be fun!" the excited me.
I hurriedly grab my photo gear: my dslr attached to a manfrotto tripod, set in a manual mode (1/20 seconds, f3.5, ISO 6400). That's the last settings I end up after a lot of tries.

Ganito yun: nasa kalagitnaan na ng fireworks display saka ko pa nakuha ang desired settings. Walang prob sa aperture o focal length kuha ko kaagad, sa ISO ako nagpalipat-lipat ng settings at mas lalo akong na-rattle sa shutter speed. Si manong at manang talaga, kung maka-inform naman eh on the spot pa talaga halos, pwede naman sanang binulong nila earlier na may ganung eksena ng napaghandaan at kalmado ang pasmado kong hands (keme lang).
