Les grands feux Casino du Lac‑Leamy: Venezuela: Wednesday August 19, 2015

Last night was the 4th installment of Les grands feux Casino du Lac‑Leamy, it was Venezuela’s turn. I went to a new shooting location to include a few of Ottawa’s landmarks in the scene.

While waiting…

Peace Tower with blue spot lights, Rideau Canal at dusk. While waiting for Venezuela to lit the sky. A few minutes later the search lights sent up beams behind the Parliament Buildings.

I swapped out my 35mm prime for my 50mm f:1.4 prime. I really like the cascade type of fireworks.

I do note that the Casino du Lac‑Leamy has retweeted several of my photos, and has liked some on Facebook. I was busy on Google Maps looking for a shooting venue for Saturday evening’s Garnd Finale.

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.
