Philly had a fireworks display this past weekend and I did a lot of homework on this site before going. I think it paid off. I just need a little C&C to see if I'm going into the right direction for the 4th of July. The only thing i realized is that I had the IS on while on the tripod, a big no-no, I know lol. Other than some editing on Canon DPP software, I think they came out ok. Here's to get the spirit of independence going. All shot with the g12 and tripod.

I think they look great. I personally have still yet to get down shooting fireworks so you are one step ahead of me. #1 is the best imo followed by #5. #2 you lost me with how blow out the center of the firework is. #6 you might wanna try cropping it portrait wise.


I shoot a little black box with a round thingy ma-giggy in the front.

You need to close down the aperture on all but the first one. Like flash, use the length of the shutter speed to control the ambient light (skyline) and the aperture to control the exposure of the burst.

Thanks for the C&C. I thought that also about the Aperture. I only had them at f/8 or 11. I thought about closing it down more but I was concentrating a little too much on which shots to go with, that i wasnt able to make the change. It was definitely out of my comfort zone but it let me learn a lot. Im going to try to do better next time and actually shoot more.
