Photographing July 4th fireworks in San Francisco has become my annual photography tradition for the past 8-9 years. Although it is not my typical landscape photo, I just want to share the foggy fireworks that was kind of special in San Francisco.
Most of the following photos are using the same setting – ISO200, 145mm, f/9, 1.6sec
- Canon 5D Mark III
- Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS lens
- Gitzo travel tripod
- Really Right Stuff BH-40 ballhead
- Phottix Aion Wireless Timer and Shutter Release. The timer and shutter release are not essential but my personal preference – I have explained this in this article
