the priority6 sec shutter speed and they werearound f/16 aperture. at ISO 100. Not bad for a first go at these type of photos with the Drebel.

I just edited your post title. I hope that's ok.


Nice, Julie. I'd love to have a go at fireworks but they don't get used often around here and when they do I have second thoughts about standing in a field at 11pm on my own. :shock::lol:

Nice shots. I have found through expirience, and nice article in Pop Photo last year, that ISO100 and F11 tend to agree very well with fireworks. I like using about an 8 sec exposure, and will probably go bulb this summer, cause I will have a remote release.

I like the second shot better. More sense of scale, and not as much of a generic fireworks composition.

I think both these would have been excellent entries in the last challenge as well, provided they were in your back garden in order to qualify as "Home - Abstract". They've turned a few moments of artificial glory into excellent representations of spiny (Aussie outback?) flowers, which are natural, and last at least a little longer.

If you want to play with fireworks, I personally recommend long exposure times and sparklers. You can create some pretty cool stuff.

I love fireworks! Shotting them and watching them. I have tried only once with poor results to photograph them. You really got good results. The color is good and they are sharpe. Nice work!

very nice alady
i only tried fireworks once...i didn't get any too good...the show wasn't big though, it was in the adirondacks..wouldn't be suprised if it was a private show too (like...small party or something)

i like the length of the explosion in the first!
