Again, thanks a bunch to Greg and his tutorial on how to photograph fireworks. :)

Same time last year, I had no idea what settings to use since I just started out in photography; fast forward to last night, if I hadn't watched that tutorial, even with a year's experience, I wouldn't know the right settings. :blush:

So Happy New Year Cazillions!

Thanks Kevin!

I owe it all to Greg ; his video on how to photograph fireworks certainly gave me all I need to know. I doubt I would get these kind of shots if I hadn't watched it ;)

Thanks guys!

As for my settings, I used what Greg advised at the video: f/22 (iirc), 4sec exposure, MF at inifinity, and ISO 400.

I used my Sigma 30mm and its smallest aperture of f/16.

Used my IR remote and tripod since it's set at 4secs as to reduce blurring.

I didn't really stay in one spot, I had to look all around for good fireworks displays. So it was a case of always being at your toes and alert :)
