A few of us from the Niagara Falls Camera Club decided to brave the throngs of tourists on a Sunday evening in July and this is one of the products of that outing.
Shooting fireworks like this is relatively easy. Set the camera on a tripod, compose your image and manually focus on infinity. Using your Bulb (B) setting, f8, ISO 100, hold the shutter open for as long as you want (a cable release works best for this). This is trial and error of course but the bursts happen randomly and are of different brightnesses. This one was 4 seconds, but I have others at 1 second and others yet at 15 seconds.
