You Capture – Fourth of July

Fourth of July Fireworks 2009






I was planning on taking pictures of the yummy foods we enjoyed at the 2 BBQ’s we went to, but for some reason my camera battery was dead and I had to charge it at BBQ #2 in time to see what I would capture of the fireworks.  I’m intrigued by the pictures I did get.  I just kept taking picture after picture after picture. There were a lot that didn’t turn out and a lot that were of black sky.  My shutter speed was really slow (I think my “fireworks” setting is 80 ISO) and hence the squiggle lines instead of the colorful sparks in the sky.

Why not check out what others captured from their celebrations?

  5. Great shots. Some day I want to try fireworks also. My town is to small to have any.

  6. I had mine on the fireworks setting and I really thought the ISO was too low. Who decided that setting huh? Anyhow, your shots came out cool and much better than mine!

    That shutter speed made some really fascinating pictures! The colors are awesome and the squiggles just add to the effect. Nice!
