    Went upto one of my locals this evening to their firework party. It had to be held this early as they used category 4 fireworks and needed clearance from Air Traffic Control. enough chatter, here are three of the photos I took

    Was quite simple actually johng25

    I had my camera in manual mode. lowered the apprerature then set the exposure length to 30 seconds for the first and last. The second one was on an 11 second exposure.

    I feel they definitely work better when the ground is in the frame, as it gives a point of reference and makes the image more interesting. For all three, it feels like you've just cut off the top, although I've never tried shooting fireworks and I can imagine guessing their height wouldn't be too easy!

    The first one looks perfect. I never had a good shot with fireworks. I am still trying to figure out how to do it well.
