4th of July

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.

Fuji x100s, 2 sec exposure at f8.0

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.
