Fireworks Friday

This was taken during Star Wars Weekend at Disney Hollywood Studios a few weeks ago.  I believe this is one of the best fireworks display that I have ever seen.  They call this show the "Symphony in the Stars Fireworks".  While the bursts were going off they have Star Wars Music playing.  It was a great show.

Enjoy!

2-stop isn't too much - when you start to see these 20-30 second fireworks shots, they end up being a big blur; I prefer to be able to see individual fireworks, but that's just my taste. :) I tend to do odd things, like zoom in close on the launchers (especially in Illuminations - or the inferno barge!), or zoom in relatively close on the actual explosion (which gets you some interesting shots)... a couple times when shooting fireworks that were just in a grassy field, I'd get the fireworks then quickly angle the camera down slightly and pop a flash to get a little grass visible on the bottom of the shot. Gotta keep mixing it up. :)
