    pretty cool for a first attempt.....try using a tripod with shutter speeds of 15-30 seconds and you'll get amazing results....

    I'd probably go with the slowest. That way you can leave the shutter open longer without worrying about getting the background exposed as much. The brightness of the fireworks will have no problem exposing the slow film. I've never shot fireworks before, though.

    The only time i've ever shot fireworks, I used a ND and polarizing filter (to drop my exposure to like 30 seconds. and then pointed where i thoiught the fireworks mihgt go off. I tworked pretty well.
