My first attempt on capturing fireworks. I'm not pleased with the result at all. I didn't have a tripod, so the aperture is set to 2.8.
I would like to try this again this year. I always fail.
Yvonne: I've read that the trick is long exposures. This is absoloutly not a long exposure. (But to long to get it sharp without a tripod.)
I'll try on the new years eve if it's not too cold. But in my experience it's allways too damn cold to do anything.
I rather like it. I've read the same thing about long exposures and fireworks but I've never tried it. Maybe you have see this one? I thought this was a good example of a long exposure shot with fireworks.
Kevin: That was a great shot actually (your example). The fireworks caught me off guard, so I didn't have the time to set up the tripod. I just put my aperture wide open and hoped for the best.
