This week Chris joins us to talk about how you can develop photographic super powers! Since the 4th just happened, the best place to start is how to shoot fireworks! Fireworks require a tripod because you need an exposure of about 10 seconds. You have to set your camera to manual, though. Automatic won't work. You should get a remote release that allows you to trip the shutter without touching the camera. Set the shutter for 10 seconds, aperture at f11, ISO at 100. That's a good place to start. Then check if it works and adjust accordingly.

Chris says it's important to tag your photos and have a system because it makes it much easier to search for what you want. Here's how you can organize your photos:

1. Make an album. Chris does this for every event. It's really easy to organize that way. Leo says that most programs will let you sort by date as well. Then you can drag them into a new album.
2. Use keywords in the meta data. Use the auto tagging features. Most apps offer a CMD+I to get information on the image and then you can add them.
