Great photos Jon. I love the guy on the motorcycle too. Hopefully you'll be able to give me some more photography lessons when you're here.
Take notes, Janine. I'm really interested in the night shots. How do you do that?
For the night time fireworks shots: Long exposure (I found 3 seconds at f3.5 - f4.5ideal) and low ISO (to reduce noise).A tripod is a must.Lots and lots of fun, though.
I tried last night, but with no tripod. I just can't hold steady enough.
Very few people can get decent shots at anything slower than 1/60 second (medium zoom) without a tripod.You can even pick up a cheap little one for occasions like this.
We do have a tripod, but I just never think to bring it along. Our fireworks show was pretty lame anyhow. We're not in the big city like you. So how did you accomplish the silhouette of someone in front of the fireworks? ;)
That was more of an accident than anything. Have a kid stand still for 3 seconds on a five second exposure then dash out of the scene.
Ooh...cool accident though. I like it. Okay...speaking of accident. You know how unpatriotic a person really is when they misspell Fourth of July. ;)
