    Last year was my first attempt at shooting fireworks with a Fuji S9500. This year I wanted better results. Unofrtunately though I don't think the outcome was better. I had a short time to take pictures as the fog became very dense, making it impossible to see any fireworks at 50 metres away. Oh well, just another way of shooting €60 milion into the sky.

    I used a Giottos MT9261 tripod, my new Manfrotto 322RC2 Grip Action Ballhead, my 400D with kitlens. Most pictures are shot at f/8 with a shutterspeed of about 3 seconds.

    They are good photos of fireworks!
    And I take it you shot people's private fireworks, nothing official done by any pyro-tech? Large-scale fireworks?
    We had two of those in my village on 28 and 29 December and I tried to photograph those, you can see some of the results here and here and also read up on all the mistakes I made on the first day :roll: I took a good deal more than I'm showing here.

    Yes, most fireworks in Holland are private fireworks. It's always hard to capture. Last year I leaned out of the attic window and held me camera still by leaning it against the window. This time I stood in my backyard with my camera on a tripod. Because there was so many fireworks around I was constantly re-adjusting the angle of the camera...

    Pictures 5,6 and 7 in your second topic mentioned look good to me. I was lucky to get the exposure correct right away with f/8, 3 seconds and ISO 100...

    Very nice. I would have expected more blur for three second shutter speeds but they look pretty sharp. :)
