5DisneyLovers (and all), info on how I shoot the fireworks. I use a Nikon d7000. Depending on where I am, usually ill use my 55-200mm lens in manual focus. Bulb mode. ISO of 100. Using a tripod and remote shutter release. Another key item is an ND filter (0.6 or 0.9). As far as where to aim, watch the show on YouTube before hand from where you want to shoot. Learn the music and timing of the bursts. Once you're set up, get your focus set up then leave it there. Exposures can be anywhere from 1 second up to 90 seconds, depending on what you're trying to capture (finale, et). I hope this helps for anyone wanting to try this. You can find all the examples of my fireworks shots on my page at Facebook.com/ThePhotographyOutpost and look under the WDW Fireworks album.

Thanks. Passing to my hubby - 5disneylovers  1144.4 #5 9:26PM
