If you are planning on taking any pictures of the fireworks this 4th of July weekend, here are some hints to help make your pictures the best they can be. Be sure to use a tripod, this will help keep the camera still so you don't get a blur. You should also be using a slow shutter speed, probably a four second exposure to get the complete effect. It is also suggested that you shoot a wide shot to include people or landmarks in the photo. Also, it is suggested that you take most of your pictures early in the show to give more detail and depth against a fading blue sky. Enjoy your 4th of July safely with pictures to remember it!
