Cowes Community Christmas Celebration

In case you missed the Cowes Community Christmas Celebration or if you want to look back and remember that beautiful evening, here are a few shots.

If you were wondering about shooting fireworks, here are my tips. Set up before they begin on a tripod. get your composition looking good and set your lens to infinity focus and put it in manual focus mode. Use a remote release in bulb mode.

  • ISO100-200
  • F/11
  • Bulb mode – I open the shutter and watch the bursts. I keep the shutter open until I think there have been too many (or just enough) in one patch of the sky that may cause over exposure. This usually amounted to a shutter speed between 4-10 seconds during the fireworks.
