Looking at life through the lens

Holiday Wishes

This was my first serious attempt at taking fireworks pictures. In the past I have pointed my camera at fireworks with some marginal results, but this time I had my camera on a tripod (Manfrotto Compact Travel Tripod) and used a remote shutter release. I did not, however, use the widest angle lens setting which was available to me (brain freeze) and that cost me many good shots.

All photos were taken from the train station in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World with the following settings.

Aperture: f/11
Shutter speed: bulb (actual exposure times listed with each photo)
ISO: 100
Lens: Nikkor 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR
Focal length: 48 mm
Nikon D3100
