One thing I've always admired is photos of fireworks. It's such a hard subject to photograph as they're gone in just a few short seconds.

I ventured into town on Saturday to watch the local carnival, which was awful but we won't go into that. They always hold fireworks after so I got a good spot on the bridge and tried for the first time to get some decent photos.


The sky was wonderfully pink before it got dark.



For a first try I don't think they're too shabby. I'm pretty happy with them. Though it's my first time photographing fireworks with a DSLR and there's about a million different settings. I didn't research beforehand how best to photograph them because I wanted to see if I could do it myself.

I'm looking forward to November 5 and New Year to get some more and improve on technique.
