Canada Day

We went to Kingston to celebrate Canada Day. The weather was perfect and the downtown area was bustling with people.

At night, we took in the fireworks display from the downtown harbourfront.

Here are a few photos of the fireworks. And a couple of tips. When I shoot fireworks I use a tripod and a remote shutter release. Everything on the camera is set to manual including autofocus. I turn the lens autofocus off and set the focus area to infinity. Aperture is set to f/11 and a shutter speed between 3 and 4 seconds.

When the rocket(s) launch, I press the shutter release just as the fireworks explode.
