I attempted to take some photos of the fireworks on Monday. The results were so-so. Although I tried to follow the recommendations I came up short in several areas.
I had a good camera and a tripod. But I was missing the ability to remotely control the camera. Thus camera shake was a issue. I think my exposure and other camera settings were good, but we were far from the action. A zoom lens would have helped a lot. Even then I think I could have got better shots closer to the firing location.
I ended up with about 360 pictures of which there’s maybe 10 good ones. Even those were too small. It was a good learning experience though!
