The 2008 4th of July is just days from now and it's my first opportunity to use my D40 to shot the fireworks so i was looking around for the best advice to get some great shots and i found this info.

Thanks to the guys at Digital Photography School for this great info:

If you have any more suggestions for fireworks please let me know. Hopefully i can get at least one good shot to share on here next week. Remember lot's of towns do fireworks on the 3rd also so I'm going to count that as a free practice day!
Happy 4th of July...........Hope you get some awesome pictures
