I was lucky to watch 3 different displays this year. Here are a few of my favorites from the 1st display! This was my first year with my dslr, so I was quite nervous. I think all the advice from my dear friends on the DIS paid off. I used a 0.9 nd filter.

28.7 sec. f/11 ISO 100


9.7 sec. f/11 ISO 100


20.8 sec. f/16 ISO 100


14.3 sec. f/16 ISO 100


33.6 sec f/19 ISO 100


11.8 sec. f/11 ISO 100


16.9 sec. f/16 ISO 100


19.2 sec. f/11 ISO 100


15.8 sec. f/11 ISO 100

Nice shots. Don't forget the ISO with the exposure information. It's all very helpful info for those trying to learn how to capture fireworks.

Thanks! Like I said, I was so nervous this being my first year with my dslr. I got my nd filter & remote shutter release just a day or 2 before the fireworks. Everything I learned about how to take firework photo's I learned right here from all of you. This was my first hands on experience, & I was pleasently surprised with the results. Once I got the basics down, it really wasn't hard at all.

This year we decided to head out to my brother-in-law's house and let the kids get in touch with their inner pyromaniac. Being a random show with things flying in every direction I opted to shoot the kids lighitng things and not the actual fireworks in the air.

This is the first year Hyper Boy got to light something. I went for exposing him which meant letting the fuse get blown out. ISO 6400 f/1.8 1/60
