We’re so excited! After our final book signing later at NBS MOA, we’ll stay on for the PyroMusical Competition! Based on the chart above, I guess we’ll be watching Finland and Portland. I’ll be bringing my camera so I don’t have to wait until New Year 2013 for me next fireworks shots. And if we enjoy it, we might just do another weekend so I can take more pictures! Excited much! Epic putukan!
This is my MOST FAVORITE photoshoot of the WHOLE year: my shoot for the family fireworks. Every single year, this is the one shoot that I REALLY look forward to. I don’t know, the satisfaction level of the challenge offered by shooting the very hard to capture fireworks is way high. It challenges me to be technical and creative at the same time. Like I always say every year, I’d prefer these photos to look less like fireworks, and more like paintings of light. As if the frame was my canvass and the light splashes my medium. Anyway, enough of the musings of a frustrated artist. I just hope you enjoy looking at this as much as I LOVED shooting them.
Until next year!
It’s that time of the year when I take pictures of our family fireworks in my sister’s resthouse in Tagaytay. This has turned out to be my most favorite photoshoot of the year. I REALLY eagerly anticipate this because I love how the photos of the fireworks look like paintings on a canvass. I actually don’t want them to look fireworks-ey, but more like brush strokes or splashes of liquid color. I’m just fascinated year after year with how the trails of light end up looking captured on a photograph. That’s why I was crushed when I thought I’d miss our fireworks because I could only leave Manila at 11:30pm December 31. We got to Tagaytay at around 12:30am, but to my endless delight, our family waited for us to arrive before they did the fireworks so I could take pictures! And of course, as I took pictures, I kept humming Katy Perry’s “Firework” as the pyrotechnics exploded in orgasms of color. What a way to start the year!
I can’t wait for next year!!!
