Default Fireworks Photos (10 images)

Since 4th of July is coming up, I'd thought I'd share some photos I took yesterday of some fireworks from a show my hometown puts on every year.

Those are some pretty crisp shots! Nice job! Was there anything special you did/settings when you took them?

Tripod, manual focus, set the aperture at either f/11 or f/16, exposed in Bulb mode. Basically, I didn't set an exposure. I held the button down for as long as I wanted to expose the sky. It'* really quite difficult. I cropped all of these because it'* nearly impossible to predict where the fireworks will go off next.

Difficult but I bet it'* fun too see how they turn out. Looks great. I can't wait until I can get a new camera! I haven't used a manual since freshman year of college.

For a P&* those aren't bad.

It really takes a full manual camera to do this. Auto-exposures will not work.

Thx for the comments.
