I bought some sparklers *coughminifireworksparklercough* *coughillegalithinkcough* the other day and I think I'll take some photos of it tonight.
Since it's going to be night photography, Logic tells me I should probably take a few test shots so I can set exposure and all that shiz.
But of course, there has to be an obstacle. Or it won't be a challenge!
I DON'T KNOW WHERE MY SPARKLERS ARE.
But never mind that.
Thing is, should I be worried about outdoor lighting? Or will the light from the sparkler be good enough? Kinda like shooting a star in the sky, when you think about it.
If I chose Center Weighted/Spot Metering and had the focus area right smack on the sparks, it'll be bright enough for the camera to achieve a faster shutter speed right?
What if I used Rear Curtain Flash Sync? It would probably look weird hor...
By the way, anybody who's seen Get Smart should watch Get Smarter: Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control (minute 49 - 50). That's like the best part of the whole movie lah, I think... Anne Hathaway, woot!
Anyhoo, I'll post pictures of zee sparklers when I'm done. Also, we have a tub of Tom Yam paste and a little jar of Basil at home and I'm SUPER EXCITED. Expect a post on one of my kitchen escapades soon. Think: Tom Yam Fried Rice (Ray's recipe) and Macaroni with tons of basil and mixed veggies.
