I attempted to learn how to photograph fireworks this year for the 4th of July. Maybe I should just stick to watching and enjoying them, because my photos really don't do them justice.
This is one of the fireworks that we shot ourselves taken with my 50mm at ISO 100, f/11 and a shutter speed of 2.5 seconds.
And this is one from the downtown fireworks display, but we didn't really want to get in the crowds so we watched from a few miles away at the lakes. Maybe next year we'll brave the crowds so we can get a better view.
I used my 200mm for this one set at ISO 100, f/9 and the shutter speed was 4 seconds.
The theme this week at texture tuesday is "3" so I'm sharing three daisies. And I used three textures - granny's cupboard, golden and she loves you yeah.
I can say it was good to try something new with photographing the fireworks, but it's just not quite as much fun as shooting flowers in daylight. I prefer a pretty flower picture over a nice fireworks shot any day.
