4th of July Fireworks

July 4, 2010

Tonight, I tried my hand for the first time at photographing fireworks. It was a last minute decision and the place was not ideal, too far away and too many trees in the way, but the fireworks themselves were beautiful.

Despite having read previously about settings and techniques, the first photos were bad, too much brightness and no details. I realized I was waiting too long to release the remote shutter trying to put too much in the same picture.

At the end, I was able to get a few good shots. Now I'll have to wait until next year to try again.
