Time-Lapse Explosions In The Sky: No One Told Highland Park That Fireworks Are Illegal
Today's video lunch is a time-lapse wonder from this month's celebration of independence around the intersection of Avenue 52 and Irvington Place. "No one told the people of Highland Park that fireworks are illegal," notes the person who posted this treat to YouTube under the alias ChurchOfBK. The photos were taken between 7 p.m. and midnight on July 4, 2011, says ChurchOfBK, who goes on to explain how the images were shot.
"It was a canon 350D (Digital Rebel XT) with the [crummy] out-of-the-box 18-55mm lens. Setting was aperture dependent w/ f-stop at around 6 @ 200 ISO. I started with 8 second intervals when it was daylight, but when the exposures got to be longer than ~5 seconds, I moved it to 3 second intervals so it would fire more quickly when the shutter closed."
