Fireworks!!





My lovely husband bought me the Canon IXUS 750 for my 'milestone' birthday last year, which has a setting especially for taking 'fireworks'. So while we were in Florida last year, we went to the Spectro Magic Firework display at Magic Kingdom - what a spectacular and emotional experience. I took about 40 shots (without a tripod!) and used my favorites to create the following layouts. They are 8x8" on black cardstock. I used an eyelet punch to makes holes, to continue the shape of the fireworks and then added yellow and red card behind to emphasise the colours of the fireworks. And just couldn't resist adding Tinkerbell - as at the actual display she starts things rolling. (A real live Tinkerbell flew across on a wire - amazing!)

Hi.
Yes I did. I must admit I was really pleased with the results. I have tried taking photos of fireworks previously - and they have just been brightly coloured splodges!! I suppose the camera must take SOME of the credit!
