Fireworks




This was my first attempt to photograph fireworks. These shots were taken on the Detroit River. It's an awesome show with lots of color. A steady hand and good timing are key.

A fast lens helps capture the details as well. One thing I learned is to take most of your pictures early because after a while the smoke really clouds your viewing.

Canon 20D, 17-40 mm, f4 (L)

Thanks Ranmac. A tripod would have helped. Several people around me had their SLR mounted on a tripod.....it's just so big to carry around though.
