Happy 4th of July!

I went to the Rockwall festivities at The Harbor the other night.  It has been a long time since I shot fireworks and I find it exciting but difficult knowing exactly how to set your camera.  Most of the shots were done at F8 for about 5-8 seconds.   Since your shutter is open for an extended period of time, it is necessary to use a tripod to minimize any movement.  I was wishing the fireworks had lasted longer.  I was just beginning to feel a little more comfortable shooting when they were over.

  1. Thanks Tess! It’s really a whole lot of “hit and miss”. Hopefully some day I will figure it all out!

  2. Looks great Fay! Rockwall is having fireworks tonight at Harry Meyers park if you want more practice! Happy 4th to all!
