Sparkler Art

Today was Monkey's first Independence Day. We got some sparklers, and the neighbors had so mony big fireworks we almost weren't missing anything by skipping the city's show. We had a blast with our sparklers in any case.

The camera was set at
Aperature: f5.8
Film Speed: 100
Shutter speed: varried, but long for the wavy ones.

Wear a black shirt.

Man, you are GOOD at taking photos. That's some good sparker art right there. =)

Tanks, I'm glad you like them!

If you can believe it, these are my first fully manual pictures! I usually let my camera take care of the nitty-gritty stuff (shutter, aperature) and only play with the parts I understand: film speed, white ballance, and zoom mostly. But Andy got me "How To Photgraph Absolutely Everything" for Mother's Day, and it had directions for how to set the camera for fireworks. Given a starting place, I fooled around a little to get the rest. One of these days I'm going to take a class; I just need a little but of direction here and there to get my bearings.
