Fireworks are fun to watch. Each year, the Polk County Fair puts on a nice display of colorful explosions. Not bad for a small community! A friend asked if I could show them how to properly photograph fireworks. The hoot if I know!

I guess it's no different from light painting, if I went the blurry route. So I set my camera's shutter to a few seconds and fired away.

Since I'm am not versed in Fireworktography, I later did some research. If your camera can manually focus, follow this link for a fun technique.
