Fireworks and my Nikon – II

The 3rd and 4th attempts have been successful to a certain degree! Most of the photos were junked due to bad timing, meaning that I missed the moments when the fireworks ignited. It is important that the camera catches the point when it just ignites, because the photo will capture a electric dandelion with a bright center.

Set your camera to ISO 50 or 100, shutter speed of 2 – 4 seconds and aperture to F8.

Remember that the grand finale at the end of the show will be a glorious show of many explosions, so your shutter speed shouldn’t be too long… all my pictures at the end of the show were over-exposed.

Here are some of the better pictures that I have. I hope you enjoy them!
