DC July 4th Fireworks
...Some photos from the 2007 DC July 4th Fireworks. I took a lot of photos from a balcony with an amazing view at a party. These were shot at 100 ISO, between f8 and f16, Manual Focus, tripod and remote shutter release. I shot in RAW for the first time but could never find the bulb setting for my camera so many of the photos wre grossly overexposed.
Shooting in RAW posed a different set of problems since i am on the fence with what photo editing and management software i want to use... Apeture or PS Elements (Bridge). I need some kind of formal class on these programs because i over saturated the colors a bit and before i could start over, i accidently convereted them to JPG and deleted the masters. This is as good as it got.
Next year, I vow to get closer to the fireworks so i don't have to go through a 70-300 telephoto.
