    Sorry for the long delay...I don't visit much these days.

    Fireworks aren't to bad to do if you follow a few rules:
    Firework Photography Tips:
    1. Switch your camera to MANUAL FOCUS. This prevents the camera from hunting in the auto focus mode in between shots. Point and shoots may not have this feature...and thus you may want to half push the shutter button to lock in your focus. (Just a bit of a pain)
    2. Set your lens distance to infinity (∞). You won’t know how far away the display will be, but you know its far away. This is mainly for interchangeable lens systems (as its easy to do), but many point and shoots and CSC (compact system cameras) may have a way to disable focusing in the menu system.
    3. Set your camera to A – aperture priority mode. This allows you to control the amount of light to the sensor. I read that I should start around f/8-10. And the best photos came in around f/8 and f/9. I tired f/13 for a shot and it was just a little too dark for my liking.
    4. Get a good tripod. Shutter will more than likely be open for 10-30secs, you won’t be able to hand hold these. If you don't have a tripod, find a stable and sturdy place to set your camera.
    5. Set ISO to 100 (or lowest available). Gives you the sharpest (least grain) photos.
    6. Use a cable release/remote if available. If you don’t your camera should have a “delay” setting of 2-10secs. This will prevent camera shake when you push the shutter button, by allowing the camera to settle.
    SIDE TIP: I would use my hand to cover the front of the lens after a few burst of fireworks, cutting all light from reaching the sensor. Sometimes to many fireworks can wash out the photo and muck of some good burst. So just experiment, you should have 10-15 mins to dial in some great shots.

    Still using a Canon 5D mark 1 and an old G9. Plus a lotta film, a GoPro, and miscellanea. Amazing how your cell becomes your go-to camera, unless you put yourself on assignment and carry The Bag.
