fireworks shots

no doubt there'll be a few looking for settings for fireworks....

my goto settings: manual focus, ISO100 (one hundred) f/14, bulb exposures of anything between 5 and 30+ seconds depending on what's going off and where.
small aperture and low ISO ensures the colours don't get washed out. may even want to push it to f/22 or beyond.

hope that helps!
