Firework Photos

I decided to read my 'how to' book regarding my Nikon D60 camera this past weekend. I've had the camera for a couple of years and is embarrassed to type that I still use it like a point and click camera. Sad, I know! I knew that fireworks would be in my future and I've never been able to figure out the correct settings to take great pictures of them. It's either really dark, picture is blurry or I completely miss the good parts all together. It's amazing how many different settings there are in this camera! Talk about overwhelming - I needed a nap after the first couple of chapters.

This was my first attempt and even though it looks better than the past I knew that I could do better so after a few more attempts I came up with these. I had to give my self a pat on the back.

I've still got a lot more to do to learn all the exact settings for the perfect picture but I've got to use this camera the way it was designed. Next, will be to learn how to edit the pictures in a cool photo editing software. Thinking about that one makes me tired as well but it's going to be fun! I just know it.
