To all my fellow Americans, Happy Independence Day! Hope you get to see some good fireworks tonight!
I took these pictures last year, and it will be interesting to see if I can improve my technique this year. I will use a tripod this year, so that should help. Here's what we can see from our deck:
If I let the camera do what it wants on auto, it wants to brighten up the whole shot.
If I cranked the shutter speed too fast, it wouldn't even capture the pinpoints lights of the fireworks that well.
This is one of my favorites...seems to be a good balance!
