    Yep, ain't that the truth!

    I've never had a ton of luck shooting fireworks.

    I have a family/friends all day/nite party (yearly thing) on July 8th and there will be fireworks there. It's gonna allow me the perfect opportunity to attempt fireworks pics.

    I could not agree more with you both
    My past "luck "with fireworks shot
    And a renewed interest in "attempting" it again

    Thanks for the links to get me thinking about it before the first one goes up this year

    One of the big things I always seem to not do is use a tripod... and it is VERY hard to get fireworks right handheld. I just doesn't seem to make it in the pile of stuff we bring to an event that has fireworks. Then its dark, and you'd have to go get it.

    Maybe we could meet up at some popular spot to see the Albany fireworks and shoot some. Is there a good place anyone is aware of that we could setup a tripod. My last couple of years of thinking I had a good place to see them were a bust... trees were in the way that I didn't realize were there. I'm guessing across the river is the ticket.
