Last minute decision to go to the fireworks display at Blyth Beach on Guy Fawkes night. I wasn't sure where they were getting set off from, so just made my way onto the beach and walked towards the general area. As it turns out I ended up too close and lots were exploding above my head. I had the D FA 28-105 with me, but should have used the 15-30. So had to shoot in portrait mode unfortunately. All taken with the K-1

Lovely set, the wet sand has added a lovely lead in.
3rd last and last one for me, but they're all great.
What kind of settings do you need for fireworks ?
I never get a chance to try this as its usually our busiest night of the year.
I know what i like, If not always why.

Very dramatic and colourful - despite you taking the 'wrong' lens.

I've always used something around 3s exposure for firework shots. And I usually take too long a lens as well.

I always think the foreground helps with firework shots in general and with these in particular - my local displays have nothing in that regard, so I haven't been out shooting for 3-4 years until I can motivate myself to go to another location.

Another fine set! I like the 3rd, 4th and landscape format ones best. Love the effect of the wind blowing left to right taking the 'smoke' and glow with it.

I think the portrait aspect suits this set perfectly - the main attraction is firmly linked to the base it came from, rather than being isolated in space, adding a good sense of perspective and a feeling of being there. I'm sure anyone would be chuffed to bits to produce firework images like these!
