  1. You would have been better off in Auto!! Lmao!!! This was a disaster from start to finish!! I personally would not have uploaded this until you have more experience.

  2. Even with the most well planned photo shoots, things go wrong! I loved the way you quickly adjusted on the fly– you recomposed the shot, adjusted the f# and ISO, and even expertly diagnosed a problem with the cable release– thanks for posting your true-to-life experience. I think my D810 has a setting to turn off the autofocus when using the timer or cable release, so with certain cameras you wouldn't have to keep switching to manual focus. Great video, thank you!

  3. Ok good to know that you can go as high as f/22. I've previsously shot f/11 in bulb mode for fireworks and got some good results, but sometimes with some of the brighter explosions, the shots were a tad blown out. Finding a spot that is a decent distance away from where they are launching the fireworks is also key. I've been too close before, and not great. It takes some experience to really get good at shooting fireworks. Your first time out you may only get 3-4 images that really work, because you often have to experiment and change settings on the fly in such a narrow time window.
