Fireworks start and end the summer season here in Chautauqua and the fourth of July always brings the biggest and the best display. You can find fireworks display through out the region during the summer. I have found that making good images of fireworks can be hit or miss for photographers. The below images where from the fourth of July celebration in Lakewood, NY. For these images I used canon 7d and 20mm 2.8 lens a 100 iso and a lens opening of f22 . The shutter was set at 30 seconds and the camera was mounded on a gitzo tripod.
