    This is one I shot at a 4th of July event about 3 or 4 years ago. It was my first attempt at shooting fireworks.

    Looks like it worked pretty good to me! :D

    I wish I could remember, I was shooting at f8, and I was trying all sorts of shutter combinations starting at about 1 sec and up to 8 seconds or so.

    I would guess this was was 1-2 seconds. 100 speed film

    I Like this a lot. You can clearly see the core of the firework. I'll have to wait until Nov5th (Guy Fawkes) when I'll end up photographing some kid with a sparkler :roll:

    As an ex-Brit, I understand that Guy Fawkes was the only person to enter Parliament with honest intentions hence the annual celebration.
    Darfion has a point with shooting a sparkler though, maybe some "writing" due to the long shutter period?
    just a thought.
    PS, love the avatar, Milligan isn't it?
