I love fireworks

Click image to enlarge
My wife and I love fireworks. This is one of the images from our trip to New Hope last Friday night. The sky was clear and it wasn't too hot. Just perfect.

For those interested here are my settings for this shot:

  • Use a tripod

  • Manual mode

  • Set on Bulb mode

  • ISO-200

  • f-8

  • Set lens to infinity
I used a cable release so I could watch and shoot at the same time

Click when you see the rocket start up and hold for one or two bursts

Not every shot will be a keeper but you'll get a few great ones.

I have also tried the following:

  • Auto focus - off

  • Image stabilizer - off

  • Use a tripod

  • Shutter speed - 3 seconds

  • f-11

  • ISO - 200

  • Lens set to infinity
Do some quick test shots and make adjustments if necessary. Let me see some of you images.
