Michael writes – “I thought I’d post the results of my first attempt at shooting fireworks, (thanks to the info I learned from the Make blog). I discovered that the smaller the aperature, the better, as it seems to keep the light trails thinner and more sharp-looking. Also, make sure your memory card is big and empty, as it’s very hit or miss in terms of timing. (These 34 came from nearly 300 shots.) Other than having to carry a tripod down to the beach, it was an awesome experience. I can’t wait to do it again next year.” – Link.
