July 4th Fireworks In the Fog


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

Equipment used

  • 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 blog
