2011 4th of July Fireworks Photographs

4th of July Fireworks
2011 4th Of July Fireworks.

It was a fun night to watch this years fireworks, I was really planning on going to the National Mall for this years 4th of July Fireworks, but due to some unforseen circumstances I wasn’t able. The important thing was I had fun with some friends and we really enjoyed the celebration.

How I shot last nights fireworks:

  • Aside from chairs and some food, I also brought my tripod with me. This is very important, when taking photographs of fireworks.
  • I brought one camera and a wide angle lens, the Canon EF-s 10-22mm.
  • No flash
  • I shot using bulb, and use an aperture of F/14
  • Most of the shots were taken between 5 and 10 secs, longer than that, and it will only create a ball of fire.
