July 4th

Fireworks can be a pain to shoot until you get the hang of it. The main trouble is the rush of trying to capture the right instant and having your settings ready for it. I found myself messing around with both short shutter speeds and speeds up to 4 seconds (with ISO and aperture to match) and enjoying both results. Without a doubt, and I hope this goes without saying, a tripod is a must for photographing fireworks unless you want to be stuck with using a shutter speed above 1/60th or 1/30th if you have a lens stabilizer. The flexibility the tripod allows you is practically a necessity. Just mess around and see what happens!
