“Fireworks – Slow and Steady”

When shooting fireworks,  a good mantra to follow is:  slow and steady. Try to capture the event with a very slow shutter speed.  In this series of photographs, my shutter speed varied from 1/5 second to 1 second. “Steady” can be achieved in several ways.  If you have a tripod, use it.  If not, try to find a tree, fence or something very solid.  Brace your camera, lower your shutter speed and experiment.  Wait for the firework burst of light and depress your shutter speed.  Good luck!
