Well what a brilliant evening I had yesterday. My hubbie and I took our daughter Sophie and her friend Becca to the local Firework Fiesta. It's held every year, with the profits going to local charities. It's an amazing extravaganda, with the local radio station, a funfair, plenty of food stalls, a monstorous bonfire, and of course a spectacular firework display.
This year my main reason for attending was that I wanted to try out my Canon 450 DSLR which I bought in July to take shots of the fireworks, which I haven't done with this camera before. I took my tripod, read up the techniques on the internet, and set my camera settings up before I left home, changed my lens, charged my battery and thought that if I could only get one good shot, it would be worthwhile. I've never managed to get good photo's of fireworks on any of my previous camera's.
