It was Kaila’s (my Wife) birthday yesterday, and all she requested was sparklers. Turned out to be a ton of fun!
All the photos here were taken with the Nokia Camera app on my Lumia 1020. All settings were default except shutter speed was set to 4 seconds. I didn’t have my 1020 camera cover so these are all taken free hand (no tripod) which means they’re slightly blurred (pretty hard to hold a phone still for 4 seconds ). The photos are untouched besides cropping and upping the contrast a bit.
Making a halo for Kaila. What is pretty impressive here is how light it looks in the sky – it was actually too dark to see without lights.
