2015 Canada Day Fireworks

I chose Victoria Island 900 metres south-west of the launch platform. This gives a virtually unobstructed view along the Ottawa River. On my cropped (APS-C) sensor camera I used a 50mm lens.

All images Pentax ✩istD SMC Pentax-FA 50mm f:1.4 prime lens. Exposures ranged from 6 to 10 seconds f:16. Before the show, the two floodlights remained on the entire show. Mind you on the Hill the stage show decided that blasting dance music and stage lights into the audience was the right way to view fireworks…

About Darrell Larose

I am a highly motivated self confessed techno-geek. While rooted in traditional analog photography, I have embraced the new technologies in photography. I am just as comfortable under the dark cloth of a large-format view camera, as I am with a digital camera. I can produce award winning photographs within the darkroom, or from a digital-desktop. With 40 years of photography as a both hobby, and over 30 in the professional arena I have always produced. I am self-taught in the digital media, I have been a PhotoShop user since 1995 (version 2.5) I found the transition fairly seamless due to my long experience in labs. I have worked within various Government photo units, including the Forensic Photo Section of the RCMP, as well as various professional labs. I can easily converse with a police forensic photographer as I can with a wedding sports or commercial photographer. I have worked for several of Ottawa’s top photographers. I have worked at several pro labs. As well as many years in photo retail.
