GlobalFest 2012, part II...

Monday was China's turn for fireworks and I was back on duty as part of the volunteer photography team at GlobalFest. The event runs every second night for six nights so there are lots of opportunities for great fireworks pictures. And, since there are six nights to shoot fireworks I am pushing myself to find a new spot each night.

Besides choosing a new location, I also decided to use a different lens. I almost always shoot fireworks with my 17-40mm lens but for Monday night I decided to try my 70-200mm. I had an idea and I wanted to see if it would work.

The challenge (and beauty) of the GlobalFest fireworks is that every night features a different country and you never really know what you're going to get. The Chinese put on a BIG show and I actually switched lenses a couple of times during the show to try and better capture the display. Despite the on-the-fly lens switching, I still managed to grab a picture or two I was happy with.


Keep shooting.
