Trying some new things, took my 2 1/2 year old out to see the fireworks tonight for the end of the Canal Fest of the Tonawandas.









This last one is kinda interesting. This is what you get when you see fireworks that when set off go zig-zagging around.

To be honest, not really, I just set the camera up on my cheap tripod and set it on bulb mode and held the shutter open for a bit when I could tell the shot was going up until it was over. I'm glad they turned out good tho.

What f/stop did you use?

It amazes me how nice a job a digital camera does on fireworks compared to the project is it to capture them on film.

Very nice!

Looking at the image info, they were taken at F27 and ISO 200. This is with the kit lens. Essentially, I just set it on Bulb mode, and started shooting. Didn't even mess with any settings.

Being a pyrotechnics enthusiast I can say these are quite excellent. Well done and thanks for sharing.

I forgot the kit lens doesn't have a f/stop ring and it just does what it wants. Thanks for the info and nice photo once again.
