Koga Fireworks Festival

Canon EOS 6D, Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 IIDG HSM, Kenko DIGITAL TELEPLUS PRO300 2X DGX (24mm, f/11, 9.3 sec, ISO-200)

Koga Fireworks Festival was held  at a city named Koga in Ibaraki Prefecture. About 550,000 people visit this city to see the big festival, much more than its population of about 140,000. You can enjoy 200,000 fireworks including big 3-shaku (about 90cm) fireworks.

I realized that changing lenses often at night led to a waste of time. The fireworks were set off from three places. Two were very close but the other was a bit far, which resulted in the difference of the size of fireworks. I used a wide-angle lens for the close fireworks and a 90mm lens for the fireworks in the far distance. Definitely, I needed a lens with the focal length of 24-70mm or like that.

The opportunities to shoot fireworks this year are very limited. Will I manage to take a photo of excellence?

Anyway, please enjoy my photos of the fireworks below!
