Independence Day Pictures

Last night I ventured out of the house for the first time all week to go watch our local fireworks display. It was kind of risky with the headaches I've been getting, but it went okay. Anyway, here's the link to the album with a few of the better pictures I was able to get:http://s196.photbucket.com/albums/aa126/dominickatmmc/7-4-07/.

Thanks. That was the first time I had ever tried to photograph fireworks and I learned it's a bit more difficult than I had anticipated. My timing sucked and I kept screwing with camera settings the whole time. Despite myself, I managed to get some decent shots.

Good pics, Tony. Now imagine what you can do next year now that you know what to do when taking pictures of fireworks!

I don't know. With the long exposure, you still have to take the picture before you know what exactly you're taking the picture of. It's really kind of hit or miss.

That's where new digital photography takes a backseat to the old. With my old camera I could just let the shutter stay open and only close it when the fireworks were over.

There are a lot of variables there. What kind of camera are you using?
...and I'm glad you like the pictures.

There are many higher end digital cameras that allow the use of a remote shutter button and unlimited exposure. I'd go so far as to say most DSLRs can. I'm just using a strictly consumer grade CCD camera that had a lot of neat features for the money, including an incredible zoom for what it is (12x optical). One day I'll get something a little nicer, but I really like this camera. I don't think I'd go (d)SLR just because I like being able to frame the picture using a nice, crisp LCD screen. I think a 3CCD may be next.
