New Years Eve Fireworks Hobart

Hobart has put on another great display with its New Years Eve fireworks. The fireworks were set to shoot a little higher this year and viewers were encouraged to spread out and avoid crowding the Hobart waterfront which is generally the main gathering point. I shot these from Bellerive.

Happy New Year everyone. Thanks very much to everyone who takes the time to visit my website, my Salamanca market stall and my photography tours around Tasmania. Last year was full of disruptions and uncertainty but I look forward to meeting more and more of you in 2021 and beyond!

Photographing Fireworks

These shots were all captured with my Pentax K1 and 24-70mm lens. I started shooting landscapes but pretty quickly switched to portraits as many fireworks were shooting out the top of the frame!

Settings were – interval shooting; TAv mode (ie auto ISO); f16; 6 seconds.
