These are my first “not bad”  fireworks photos. What makes it hard for me to plan good shots is I lack experience and commonsense. I also never know where to point my camera as I don’t know who are the people that will sacrifice animal sanity, and part of their Christmas bonus to have a good time.

Both photos were taken using a tripod and the camera set on Bulb mode. The shutter was controlled using a cable shutter release and the duration of the exposure was based on gut feeling.  I should have used ISO 200 or even 100.
