I Know this is a bit late for fourth of July, but fireworks still go on after the fourth
In this Instructable I will show you how to take great firework shots at night, with almost any camera.
Step 1: Get Your camera
The camera i will be using is a Canon Rebel XTi , a SLR. Almost any camera with adjustable settings, can be used in this instructable. Almost any Canon Camera has settings like the rebel xti, so you should be able to follow along. I am certain that fuji and a few other brands have these manual settings. Other brands may work, but you will have to consult your manual for those.
Step 2: Figure out how to go to manual mode
In this step you will need to set your camera to a manual mode. If you have a SLR anything like mine you need to turn the dial on the top to "TV", which puts priority on shutter time. Depending on what camera you have you want to be able to adjust the time of the shutter.
