Fourth of July


As you may have noticed, I have been doing a lot of reading on the Digital Photography School blog lately. A recent post gave tips on taking pictures of fireworks, and since 'twas the season, I had to give it a try. So I got myself a beginner's tripod and set it up on our rainy rooftop yesterday evening to try out some shots of the July 4th fireworks. I had to get there early to stake out a good spot, but got some decent shots in spite of the rain and slightly slanted rooftop.


All of these were taken at ISO 200 with shutter speeds varying from 1/2 a second (the last shot) to 10 seconds (the shot above). Though I experimented with some lower apertures, I found f8 served me best.

not bad Elizabeth....I better watch out! One tip, try to manual focus (using your hands) on the buildings so that they are in focus. Good stuff!

Thanks photojournal! I actually WAS using manual focus but definitely could have gotten sharper shots of the buildings. I suppose the rain didn't help!
