Ipswich Maritime Festival

Our first visit with a purpose – to try and capture the vibes and atmosphere of the Maritime Festival as part of our Docklands project. In reverse order I will be posting some images that reflect my view of the day (pun intended!).

The climax of the day’s events is of course the fireworks display, now I must admit that this is my very first attempt at capturing fireworks and I was pleased with my results, here are a few to be going on with…

Don’t ask about the technical details – it just seemed to work, taken on my Fujifilm X-E1 with 18-55 set at 18mm, using Trigger Trap App on my Sony Xperia Z1 Compact… between 5 and 10 second exposures, f11 pre-focused on infinity.
