Fireworks tutorials:



My notes:  

The tutorials recommend setting manual focus with reference 
to something (e.g. a building) about the same distance away as the fireworks.  
Ours are all open sky, so I set the manual focus on infinity.

ISO: 200
Aperture:  8  (go higher next time--too much light!)
Shutter Speed:  1.3 seconds  (sparklers around 15 seconds)
(longer allowed the wind to move the fireworks 
and give the tails a funky shape)
