    Well, no one else put it up, so figured I'd start the thread! Hope you all had a wonderful July 4th!

    Great pictures! How do you get them so clear? I'm having trouble with taking fireworks pics.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I pre-focused on something where the fireworks would be, then set the camera to manual. And used f/11...hope that helps a little.

    I took my first digital photos of fireworks last night after a 2 hour rain delay. After putting the camera away, they started fireworks at 10:30 pm. I did some shot that wasn't worth posting.
    Fireworks shots are a big difference with 35mm and digital.

    Great pix, folks! Here are a few of mine from last night. I set to about f13 with camera on manual and these were with about 2sec exposure times (cable release on bulb setting).

    What did you have the iso at on those? There's a looot of noise. Especially in the last photo.

    ISO 100. Not much noise ... glare from ajoining stadium lights and a fair amount of dust.

    Our fireworks display in Abilene. The camera was set at f8 and 200 iso. I have lots more I just haven't processed all of them yet.

    Here is my first attempt at shooting fireworks. I'm going to another show next month where I should be able to get within about 100 yards of where they are firing, so this was practice :)

    ISO 100
    Aperture set at 9
    Shutter speed set to bulb

    These are wonderful, folks. John L, which lens were you using? I thought about bringing my Sigma 10-20, but didn't. Wouldn't have worked well, though, as ours were not over water and foreground was too cluttered.
