a few weeks ago, matthew and sam played around with some long exposure photos and glowsticks. so when we broke out the sparklers on the 4th, sam asked if we could try it again. i was pretty impressed that he remembered, and i can honestly say i wouldn't have thought to do it if he hadn't asked!
i didn't have time to look up ideal settings, so i just winged it. these were taken with a canon 60d + 50mm 1.8lens. iso 250, f9 & a 10 second exposure. we had 6 boys and several sorts of sparklers in action - the colors & spark variations are so fun!
