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.
