Behind The Lens

Location
As a finalist in a local photo contest, (2016 New Generation Amateur Photographer Of The Year contest), I was invited to photo shoot The Abbotsford International Airshow. This was shot on the first evening of the show during their fireworks display using a tripod remote shutter release and a long exposure.
Time
This was taken at 8:52 pm on August 12, 2016
Lighting
The only lighting was the fireworks and the runway lights.
Equipment
This was shot on a Manfrotto 290 tripod and a wireless shutter release on a Nikon D3300 camera, a Sigma 10 - 22mm wide angle lens at 20mm with a 20 sec exposure at F/11, ISO 100
Inspiration
This was my first try at capturing fireworks and I wanted to get the full profile of the jet in the photo with the fireworks. I took this photo to submit in the local photo contest that that I was lucky enough to be a finalist in.
Editing
I bumped up the exposure by a stop, then unsharp mask.
In my camera bag
I have a Nikon D3300 camera. A Nikkor 55-300mm VR F/4.5-5.6. A Nikkor 18-55mm Kit Lens. A Nikkor 50mm F/1.8 for portraits & a Sigma 10-22mm F/3.5 for wide angles. A Manfrotto 290 Tripod. A Nikon wireless shutter release & a Yongnuo YN560 IV Speedlite.
Feedback
I believe for a shot like this it is a must to be set on a tripod and using a remote shutter release because of the long exposure. Then review each shot and adjust accordingly. I was set in using F/11 because I wanted the starburst effect from the lights. ISO 100 because I wanted no noise in the dark areas. Then adjust your shutter speed to get the image you like. :)
