Although I couldn't get to the waterfront to take great pictures of the celebration fireworks for Independence day, I was able to shoot these from our rooftop. July 4th Fireworks in San Francisco.
It was my first time. Making photo's of fireworks. I studied the guide on how best to make pictures of fireworks, but was still not sure on how to proceed. But what better opportunity than the celebration of the 75th years of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. In total, I made 278 pictures, of which these ones are the best!
Very rare moment, lights on the Golden Gate bridge are all turned off, seconds before the fireworks started. I was able to make this picture in the moments the bridge was pitch black.
Picture details: Focal length 50mm, Exposure: 8 sec, Aperture: f/2 ISO: 100
