My tip:  Pick a spot with an interesting foreground.  Just bursts are boring.

Where the fark were you three days ago, Subby? The Canada Day shots I took on my BlackBerry from eight kilometres away turned out like crap. I blame you.

As someone whose good camera got destroyed in May, I'm not getting a kick....

\thank God I had my friend's point & shoot, otherwise I would have nothing from that trip

Taking pictures gives me an excuse to ignore busybodies who've decided it's their business to tell me what I should and shouldn't do.

So, the article basically said use a tripod, cable release, and Kodachrome? (Yes, I know Kodachrome was 25, 64 and later 200).

I thought I had a good position for the Canada Day fireworks but there was so much damn light pollution from the city that my shots were terrible. Any exposure long enough to capture the fireworks properly had all this crappy yellow light in the background.

ISO 100, f/5.6, 4 sec, WB ~6100K.

Thank me later.

1. go outside on a sunny day
2. open back of camera
3. pull out film and hold up to sun to see picture
4. load film back in camera

I'm kinda thinking that by the time the pictures were developed, the fireworks would be over.
