Fireworks with the D3S (4 pics)

Here are a few from the Loveland, Colorado fireworks last night. After some experimentation with f-stops from f7.1 to f8, and shutter speeds ranging from 10 seconds to 30, I settled on the Bulb approach using the MC-30 to hand trigger each shot as it unfolded in front of me. I was shooting at f8 with focus set manually to infinity using the 28-70. All exposures were manual and of course the camera was on a tripod as well.

Here's wishing all a great second half of the year.

10s @f7.1, ISO200

30s @f8, ISO200

15s @f7.1, ISO200

13.5s @f7.1, ISO200, custom WB to bring out the blues and purples a little more
