Thanks. It's a focus-pulling technique. You manually twist the focus ring while the fireworks are going off.

#1 is from my city's 60th anniversary celebration last week. First time I ever got close enough to shoot at 24mm:

#2 is from the 4th a few years ago at another location. They keep putting buildings in the way. :cry:

Went to the fireworks in Fairfield, Connecticut with my fiancee last night and brought my 80D and 18-135 to capture some of the fun. This was my first attempt photographing fireworks, but I think they came out great considering.

A few shots from tonight's fireworks show in Ormond Beach, FL. Used my 24-105 lens @ 58mm, f/16, ISO 100, 12 sec. The shots are heavily cropped. I used a 5D Mark III with a remote shutter release in Bulb Mode. Held the button down when I heard the firework going up in the air and released the button when the firework faded, which seemed to be at the 12 second mark. I adjusted the aperture to F/20 or 22 as the fireworks got brighter. Not bad for not having shot them in a few years. Of course, these were shot on a tripod.
