4th of July Fireworks Photography

Last night we went to see the fireworks display in Auburn. It was a very enjoyable night to have even just an hour or so to hang out with some friends and family while we waited for the fireworks. The fireworks display that the city of Auburn Alabama puts on each year is great, and we have been to see fireworks all over the country.

This year they started a little early, we presume because a storm was on its way, but they were still great to see. I decided to take my camera equipment and do some fireworks photography this year. I have not shot any public fireworks display in many years, but still came away with a few good shots.

Normally when doing fireworks photography you want to setup using a sturdy tripod so you can use your remote shuttle release in manual mode, but I found another Auburn photographer on Twitter (ToomersCoffee) who also got some great shots hand holding with a faster ISO.

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend.

  1. Scott, I enjoyed those great pictures of the fireworks. We were on our way, when we past Felton Little and the score between Dadeville and East Montgomery Dixie Youth District Softball All-stars was very close 2-1 so we decided to watch the rest of the game. It is ends that East Montgomery slam several runs and Dadeville made many errors that resulted in a 11-1 game in the 4th ended the game with the 10 run rule.

    Your pictures are impressive and though I did not make the celebration, it is obvious that it was a great time for all.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I am curious. Are you related to Larry Fillmer? I would have asked with a direct Twitter message, but you don’t follow me.


  2. Scott, I just came across your website today. But I wanted to say I am now a fan. A fan of both the site and your photography. I went to try and shoot some fireworks for my first time Friday, I went without a tripod though so some are far too blurry. I sat down on the ground and tried to make a human tripod. It was interesting. I atleast got one great shot though and had fun, and that’s all that matters right?
