Here’s shot number 2 in my 3-part series from shooting Happily Ever After. I opted to shoot with my Nikon 24-70 2.8 using a 3 stop B+W ND filter. I really like using a 3 stop ND filter for fireworks as I feel like it has the perfect stopping power for shooting fireworks with a bit longer shutter. I did use a 6 stop for a while which is great for some REALLY long exposures but found often times there were so many bursts captured it just became a mess of color. For this shot I’m at f5.6, ISO 64 and shooting bulb mode I did 15 seconds for this shot.
