Just for the applaud
of common people
They tear themselves into pieces
Let their lives
Come down in multiple colours.
Here are some pictures I took of the fireworks from the July 4th
Before I went to the fireworks, I did a search on the web about taking photos of fireworks and set up my digital camera the best I could based on the info I found online and reading my digital manual. I was happy with the pictures I got from the camera as this was the first nighttime photos I took.
The pictures below are thumbnails and if you click on the picture, you will get the actual photo and if you weren't able to capture photos from the fireworks you attended, you can right click on the enlarged photo and save it to print out and use in your 4th of July layout. Note: When you click on these thumbnails to get to the actual photo, the actual photo is large for it is my actual digital photo to have printed. So some of these pictures pictures range up to 675kb in size to be able to print out up to an 8x10. So download time on slower computers may take longer.
Digital camera used to take these photos is the Canon PowerShot A40 2.0 mega pixels

Since I am getting emails on were I found the online info to take pictures and how I set up my camera and what camera I used, I will share it with all of you in case you find it useful.
I did a search on "How to photo fireworks" and I came up with many sites. Here are the two sites I found useful to help me set my camera to the settings needed to take the pictures I took....
I also pulled out my manual to my digital camera and between the three was able to set up my camera to take the fireworks pictures.
I have a Digital Canon PhotoShot A40 2.0 pixel camera.
Here is what I did to capture the pictures I shared...
I changed my Manual settings...(If you change your settings on your camera, you might want to take a note as to the original settings in case they don't change back automatically.)
ISO setting = 100
My Exposure settings = 1/30 f8.0 (with zoom it automatically went to f14)
Now my settings were to work both in modes (P) Program and in (M) Manual. But while testing during the warning fireworks, I found that the best photos were the (P) Program setting with the flash turned off.
