This time, I wanted to try something different. To combine different fireworks together. The tip is to use a black card. Both Wenwei and I were kind of nervous. Many things can go wrong using a black card than the usual technique. Overexposed fireworks was our main concern and we were right. This technique requires practise and most importantly, Intuition.
Practise time was only 10min every Sat until the actual NDP. Our hideout is Promontory at Marina Bay. The place is so windy and gets a panoramic view of the entire Marina Bay. Besides, ample places to sit!
Last week’s NDP Fireworks without Black Card.
With Black Card.
Comparing the 2 different techniques, the usual 3-4secs of exposure to fireworks is a lot easier and cleaner. And more photos can be captured. The technique using the Black Card captures less photos but the fireworks will have more dimensions and layers. To get a great image with Black Card takes a lot of practise. Timely, Precision and Intuition.
