I know I post some of these fireworks pictures in the small collage below, but I wanted to show them larger because, well, frankly, I am proud of myself. Since the photography forum I post them in continually fails to recognize my existence, you get them here.
I spent probably about an hour yesterday reading tips on how to photograph fireworks. I stressed over it and miraculously, my camera proved very easy to operate – even in the dark, packed in wall to wall people and after I had been drinking booze.
I also wanted to show the difference between the first and third picture in comparison to the middle shot. The first and third pictures were taken using full manual controls and a tri-pod. After I had some acceptable shots, I turned the camera on the Carry-On and took a few of her watching the fireworks. After that, I pointed the camera back to the fireworks and took the remaining shots on full-auto. Yuck. Aren’t numbers 1 & 3 much better?
If you are considering purchasing a digital SLR camera, I recommend it. The picture quality and fun you can have with it is well worth the cost.
Thanks for looking today!
