ka-pow!

Some friends of ours hosted a fourth of July soiree over the weekend and we were so glad to be there. Lots of delicious food and drink and great conversation, and then there were fireworks. Woot!

I realized when we were out there that my camera has a setting for fireworks, so I switched that on and hoped for the best.

It works pretty well, actually.

The hardest thing was getting the camera centered properly to get the entire blast in one shot.

I have to say, I’m pretty impressed with how well it captured these! Because of the fireworks setting process, it takes a longer moment before you can take a second shot, and by then that firework has usually faded, so I got better with timing the further on it got.

Many big thanks to our hosts George and Jenny for such a terrific evening!

  1. Those look great! Especially the last one. I have a fireworks setting too, but have never really had occasion to use it.

  2. This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen, Anne!

    • Oh, and this is Liz, not Lia. TYPO, ugh! šŸ™‚

      • I don’t know why my comments aren’t really working correctly. I mean to say that these pictures are the coolest thing I’ve ever seen! I love fireworks!

        • Thanks, Liz! These fireworks were SO cool! Apparently they migrated from Ohio to Michigan, hence the enhanced level of coolness (MI fireworks are less awesome). I was so glad my camera got some good shots!
