San Francisco Fireworks.

Spent some cold minutes in high winds capturing the San Francisco Fireworks last night. Good show…if you like fireworks. You can see more here.

One question I get this time of year is “What settings do you use?” So, here you go. I was using a 55-200mm lens on my Fuji X-T1 mounted on a tripod. The aperture was f/7.1 or f/9.0. ISO was 200. Shutter speed was set to Bulb. Using a remote control, I would trip the shutter when I saw the launch flash on the barge. I’d let up at some (random) interval after that. The shutter speeds in the gallery range from 2.6 seconds up to 6.5 seconds.
