Happy 4th of July!

We're traveling across country right now, to join family for a wonderful week of play and catching up. I've been reading up on taking good fireworks shots, and some of the most common recommendations include:

1. Use a tripod
2. Use the bulb setting, or leave the shutter open for long exposures
3. Have something interesting in the foreground and/or background - even wet down your street to capture reflections (this is a new one to me).
4. Capture multiple explosions on one frame.
5. Have fun!
6. Be safe!

Next week we'll have an opportunity to share, and since I'll be staying with family I hope to have some internet availability. Though, we will be spending part of the week at a cabin in the mountains.

If I don't get something posted until the end of the week
Happy 4th of July, and
have a wonderful week, and check back so we can share our images!
