The Stuttering Trail
don't stare into the vortex
Damn I hate equipment malfunctions, well it was probably a operator error, however it does feell better to blame it on the equipment...on the topic on things that crap me off, writing a post on gplus and to only have it disappear by pressing the backspace button a few times or something, very irritating, you would think that google in therr wisdom (like in gmail or docs) would have an auto save function when writing a 21 billion word post, cause it gets a bit annoying having to rewrite it... ;) oh also while I am at it, how about a input box that your can resize ? its like typing on your mobile phone when your actually in front of a bazillion inch screen lol.
rant end.

Star Trails are actually pretty easy to create, simply find a nice dark spot out on a moonless night and plonk ya camera down on a tripod. Point it somewhere in the vicinity of south and take a few shots every now and then, best to leave it and come back a few hours later, or better still come back the next and hope your camera is still there and some clown has not pinched it ;)

Adobe PS CC makes it pretty easy to create the image from the 14.5 billion images you took while the camera was sitting out waiting to be stolen, CC now has the Statistics function built in, simply load your images up in file>scripts>statistics and using the maximum option zap them together for some trail fun.
Alternatively just use the load files into stack option and zap(blend) them together using the lighten mode, don't forget to whack in your nice foreground shot.

The foregound shot can simply be a shot taken at dusk to get the scene nicely illuminated or you can get you torch out for some funky light painting. But, and a big but, if you do light paint (and this is very important and error that many make) be sure to do it off the camera position (at least a dozen steps away) and get low, this will help create texture in the scene (see here and give your scene depth.

Fireworks in Paradise

Waikiki, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii, USA
NIKON D600 + 24.0-70.0 mm f/2.8 @ 50 mm, 12 sec at f/8, ISO 100

I knew in advance that every friday night there were fireworks on the beach next to the Hilton Waikiki Beach Resort and that we’d have a great view of them from our living room and balcony of our hotel (one of the reasons I’d requested a room on this side)

With this in mind we had dinner in our dining room in plenty of time for the 7:45PM kickoff. The rest of the family relaxed inside and watched through our panoramic living room windows which looked straight out over this. I’d setup on the balcony earlier and taken in a very nice sunset along with twilight and the blue which followed

Personally I wished they’d run the fireworks about twenty five minutes earlier so that we could have had some twilight blue sky to go along with the lit buildings and the fireworks display – but alas the fireworks started right on time at 7:45PM, about 50 minutes after sunset and twilight had pretty much faded from the sky

The show was good (fireworks are always a winner with the kids… and kids at heart :)) and I found with timing some longer exposures I could add a little more (light pollution) colour to the sky
