This was my first time shooting fireworks in Manual. I used a very slow shutter speed - 3 sec, f8, ISO 100 for some and for others 4s, f11, and ISO 200  (all straight from the camera). 

I like the  purple sparklers in this one- they look like doves to me, or maybe it's just my imagination....


  1. Nice pictures of this firework, very well done Mary.
