    My cam has a setting for fireworks so I wanted to test it out.. since my brother, grandpa, and dad all shot off some the other night.. I tried.. I'm still not used to the setting so they're not all that great.. these were the only ones that I liked enough to post

    Nice job. I've tried to shoot fireworks before but without much luck. But these are very good :thumbup:

    I agree, nice job! And the first is great, you're too hard on yourself!

    fireworks are so much fun to shoot... i really enjoyed these. look around on the internet for tutorials before your next shoot, there are a bunch of them out there... they will give you all kinds of ideas to try. my only suggestion would be to get a little tripod and use the camera's timer if you don't have a cable release or remote. although, handheld shots are fun too because you can capture some crazy movement... :thumbup:

    Here's one from July 4th last year... one of my first posts here on TPF --> http://thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26543

    Thanks for the advice, I'll definitely look into them :). I just looked at a tripod today that's 41 inches tall so that works and it's compatible with my cam so that works too :D

    Your pic is awesome btw, I love black and white pics :D
