Happy Independence Day to all my fellow Americans and especially to the US service men and women serving around the world to keep us free. Here's a shot I took at the Kadena AmericaFest fireworks show last weekend.
Remember shooting fireworks is all about timing. Try to time when you press the shutter to right before the explosion. Also, use a tripod if possible since your shutter speed will need to be long to capture the full burst. If your shooting with an iPhone try using a slow shutter app, or use burst mode and hold down the shutter for a couple seconds to fire off a series of shots. Most of all, have fun.
