I hope those of you who shot fireworks for the holiday captured some good ones. I read an article some years back about shooting fireworks. It said you should use four to six seconds shutter speed, an aperture of f/11 to f/16, and a tripod. A co-worker suggested using a hat to cover the lens also. The hat stops the exposure so the burst of light, firework bloom, does not get to big. It has been helpful tip. Thanks, Mark! Also, the article it mentioned having a famous landmark in the picture. This would give the viewer a sense of scale and place. Well, the Burger Stop in Layton, Utah is not world famous but a landmark no less! Good food and car shows throught out the summer. You should give them a try! Thank you to Layton City and those who put on the show. A good time was had by all!
