Singapore will celebrate its 44th National Day on 9 August 2009 with a grand parade at the Esplanade waterfront. The traditional finale of the parade has always been a fireworks spectacular. I was around the area last weekend and caught a preview of the finale during the parade rehearsal. Fireworks are always tricky to catch on photography since it is almost never possible to predict where or when the light-bursts will occur. I had my camera set mainly on a fixed aperture and ISO speed while triggering the shutter on “B” mode and gauging the timing by feel. I think I might make another trip to this coming weekend’s rehearsal for yet another try 🙂
