Grand Marais Fireworks 2009

Last night, I at­tend­ed my first Grand Marais (Minn.) Fourth of July fire­works. It was very cool.

In the past I’ve shot fire­works right around the neigh­bor­hood of ISO 200; f/11; 20 sec­onds — give or take. That has seemed like a good ex­po­sure to get both the fire­works’ bright­ness and the trails. How­ev­er, the fire­works at Grand Marais seemed to come quick­er than they have in the past, so for some of the time, I went down to ISO 100 and 10 sec­ond ex­po­sures at f/11.

Here are the re­sults:

20 sec. at f/11; ISO 200; f=35mm
20 sec. at f/11; ISO 200; f=35mm
10 sec. at f/11; ISO 100; f=35m
10 sec. at f/11; ISO 100; f=35m
20 sec. at f/11; ISO 200; f=35m
20 sec. at f/11; ISO 200; f=35m
20 sec. at f/16; ISO 100; f=35m
20 sec. at f/16; ISO 100; f=35m

Thanks for look­ing,

- Caleb
