2019 Old New Year's Firework From Tbilisi

Here at Piece of Life and ReinisFischer.com we just love fireworks photography. It's one of the photo techniques I wanted to master first when learned secrets of successful photography.

My first experience with fireworks photography was a couple of years ago when I had a chance to visit St. Marks square in Venice during New Year's night. The result?  It was a very crowded event, but still, I managed to get at least something. After we returned from Venice back to Tbilisi I made a kind of lovely Old New Year's firework photography from our balcony. You can see the result here: Old New Year's fireworks in Tbilisi

I made one of my best fireworks photography a year ago from Tamar Mephe bridge in Tbilisi, see Happy New Year! Fireworks Photography from Tbilisi 2018

In 2019 we had another great reason to memorize these fireworks, our baby daughter turned 6-month old and we thought fireworks should be a good ending for such a great event. Here is the result:
