    My World Tuesday; Trying to Capture Fireworks










    One of the things I like most about using the Olympus, is the
    ease and simplicity of the camera. Last night was the first
    time I tried to capture fireworks. The Evolt E-410 has multiple
    settings to fit every situation, including a specific "fireworks" mode.
    I had no intention of trying to capture fireworks this year, but I passed
    by my family room window at dusk and saw the full moon rising in the
    eastern sky. So, again I set up the tripod on the deck and captured
    some awesome moon shots (to be posted later). Then the residual,
    residential fireworks appeared. I quickly changed lenses and adjusted the
    shooting mode to "fireworks"and waited.....
    I did learn a lot and I'll be better prepared next time they light up
    the night sky. ENJOY!

    Fireworks taken are difficult shots.
    I try to use my Nikon D80: it´s so hard to learn how to take good shots!!

    You did and excellent job on these, with some interesting images. Fireworks are one of the hardest images to get so give yourself a pat on the back.

    You might want to check out an old firework post of mine.

    What fun! My Muskoka was pleasantly quiet (and cold) this year.
