How to photograph fireworks - something to think about BEFORE the 4th of July

I have received numerous questions from readers asking how to properly photograph fireworks. As the 4th of July is only days away, I thought I would help you all get better photos from this year's fireworks show. And the good news is that I can point you all to last year's blog entry.

You see, last year, I posted a blog on photographing fireworks, but I did so on the 5th of July (using the previous night's photos as examples or what to do and not do). And yes, there were numerous comments from readers saying "I wish I had known this last night." Well...here is your reminder to check out the "do's and don'ts" of photographing fireworks You can check out that blog entry HERE.

In the mean time, here are some of my favorite fireworks photos:


In Beijing, during the Opening Ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics


Fireworks over Niagara Falls (from the Canadian side)


Fireworks over Melbourne, Australia


A celebration of the 125th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty in New York


Another shot from the Statue of Liberty celebration


Christmas celebration in Mammoth, CA.

In case you missed the link to last years blog, it is HERE.

To all of you in the US, have a great 4th of July!
