2002 Herndon Fireworks

I had never tried my hand at fireworks photography before and after a bit of research I decided I had to attempt it.

I put the camera on a tripod and used manual focus set to infinity. I put the camera on manual with the shutter speed on bulb and the f/stop at f/11. The ISO was set to 200. A remote release completed the kit

I began snapping photos and suddenly it seemed like the fireworks show was over. I had been so busy concentrating on the photos that I really didn’t see the show.

Still, it was a success, though my lens was a little long given where I was located.

These are the best of the series. You can see the others at www.flickr.com/photos/ac4lt/sets/411350/.
