Did you use your ND filter?
Thank you so much!! That's one thing I have not tried yet - using a ND filter with fireworks. It's definitely on my list to try soon though!!

I was just curious as to whether you had, as you seemed to be a fair distance from the bursts when you took these shots and looking at your settings I am wondering if you had those same one at a show like Wishes for example (where the guest is relatively close to the actual fireworks) it would have been more necessary. Whatever you did, you clearly judged well. I hope mine are half as good!

I finally got around to trying my ND400 9-stop filter for Illuminations last week, so can squeeze in some fireworks shots before the year's over:





















Plus a couple of the MK show from the roof of the BLT...no ND filters on these:

Sorry Paul, I thought you could see the EXIF info if you clicked on the photos but if I log out, I see that you can't

All shots in that post were with a tripod, ND8 filter, ISO 100
In the order of the three posted:
1. F16, shot at 16 mm, 16 seconds
2. F22, shot at 12 mm, 32 seconds
3. F22, shot at 12 mm, 26 seconds

Here are some of mine from Norfolk, VA's Harbor Festival this year. The biggest difference between shooting these and shooting fireworks at Disney... waiting for the fireworks to start while sitting in a comfortable folding chair with a cooler full of snacks and sodas is a much better experience than standing on Main Street for an hour trying to keep people from tripping over your tripod legs.

All images are f/22, ISO 200, bulb mode with remote shutter release, and were tweaked with Lightroom in post.

Here are a few from Illuminations

Again, tripod mounted, bulb mode w/ remote shutter release

These are all *so* good! It shows off the high level at which the members of this board practice their photography.

Now if the camera manufacturers would give us ISO 1 so we wouldn't have to buy ND filters...
