Fireworks

I've had never the opportunity to take "real" fireworks photos before, and I wasn't up for battling the crowds for a good spot. Instead I drove to the park at the end of my street, parked and climbed up on the roof of my car and did my best. No tripod, no remote and just used my 50mm lens. It was a fun learning experience!

WOW, those came out great! What were your settings?

In the latest Popular Photography magazine (I think it's the lastest, but who knows I'm so behind on all of my magazines!) they did an article on "Focused Blur" and fireworks. I really want to give it a try. Maybe there will be fireworks again soon.

I took these on "bulb", f/11, ISO 100 Exposure time was 3-8 seconds
