Thanks for the tip, I'll give a try.

Hey everyone I need some advice. My geeky bro actually got a date for homecoming next weekend and he wants me to do some portraits of them for proof . I'm more into the quirky, and nature shots. Don't do much of people. Any tips?? i.e exposure times, apertures, ISO speeds especially. Maybe even composition; I know that's a little hard, but if there are some best practices, that'll help out a lot. Thanx!

Well, this was my third attempt at fireworks after going to two shows around Independence Day (One on the 3rd and the other on the 4th). A good location helps. A tripod is a MUST. A shutter release is also very handy so that you can enjoy the show and click the shutter open in anticipation of a firework(s) burst. Since a show is ~20min or more, you should be able to experiment a bit and work your way to the finale. Try something like F4 and a couple seconds and adjust from there. If it's too bright, use a slower aperture or a longer exposure. You'll get the hang of it!

Depending on wind conditions and how close together fireworks are you really get some nasty smoke with garbles up pictures. Some of the best fireworks shots I've done were of non-professional shows, near a park where lots of people shoot them off in different places. Then you don't have the smoke problems from them all going off at once. Sometimes that can help. Framing can also be important (as always), get something interesting in the background and around the edges if you can, buildings would look cool.

Dr4gon, those shots are awesome btw.

Nikon D80 with 18-70mm and 70-300mm VR. I plan on very soon getting the D90 (when it comes out), the D300 or D700.
