If photography is drawing with light...... this must be photography squared (drawing the drawing of light). Nicely captured. I have never attempted to take pictures of fireworks. Care to elaborate on the tricks that one might want to know before heading out?

Thanks for the kind words. I was pretty pleased with the results. The hardest thing for me was getting the focus right. They were all shot in Manual mode F9-11ish. Shutter anywhere from 2-6 seconds. This is only a small sample of what I shot. I 'missed' the entire show shooting pictures but it was worth it. I need to figure out how to post the exif data so you can see what the parameters were.
