Thanks i was figuring that, i just didnt want to shot and test while the display was going on. Your pictures are great!tripod mount your camera
cable or other remote release
f/9 or so
if it is PITCH BLACK... try 5-15 second exposures during the bursts
here is a link to some i took 2 years ago
D200... and a setup as above
all the EXIF data is with each picture... HOVER over the image... then click PHOTO INFO
Ahhh, yes. I had read that before and forgot to bring something to cover the lens last night. Great tip.I agree with Greg. One other thing to try. Cover your lens between bursts, in bulb mode, uncover when you see new firework launched. A ball cap works great. Also, I like to include some of the scene, for context. More interesting than just the burst to me. YMMV Most of all, have fun!
