The first time I tried to capture fireworks, the results were a mess. After some research however, I was able to nail it the next night. I have pretty much been taking firework pictures for years and honestly I don’t think I have captured anything close to that second night after my disaster night. I know the settings I should use (very slow shutter speed, large F #, low iso, tripod and shutter release) but it has been increasingly difficult to get that “perfect” shot. With that said, I am happy with these two shots. Wasn’t too sure the weather was going to cooperate but it all worked out. Good luck to everyone else who goes out and tries to capture firework photos!
