Every year since 2003 (with the exception of a few years when the town didn’t have an event) my family and I have attended the Montgomery Township Independence Day Fireworks. The first few years the event was held on the lawn of the Orchard Hill Elementary School. Now the event is a major township event that draws a large crowd from nearby towns. The kids get to hang out on the high school lawn, eat kettle corn, chat with their friends, eat hot dogs, enjoy a local area band and then some spectacular boom and bang display at the end of the night.Camera : NIKON D5100, Focal length : 35mm, Aperture : ƒ/4, Shutter speed : 1/80s, ISO : 100, Captured : 30 June, 2016, Copyright : © Khürt L.

I always attempt photos. This year I tried capturing the display with my iPhone 6. I mounted the iPhone 6 with a clamp on the side of my tripod. I have experimented with long exposure waterfall photography using the ProCam app so I thought shooting fireworks photos with the app would be easy. For long exposures of waterfalls, the app does a good job of smoothing out running water.Camera : NIKON D5100, Focal length : 35mm, Aperture : ƒ/4, Shutter speed : 1/3200s, ISO : 400, Captured : 30 June, 2016, Copyright : © Khürt L.

However, the app didn’t do as well with fireworks photos. I don’t think I used the app correctly. The results were not been very good. The images were either way out of focus or the highlights were blown out. I tried various modes but none produced a useable image. Perhaps I just need to experiment some more. I’ll have a few more opportunities. New Hope in Pennsylvania has fireworks displays every Friday during the summer.

The fireworks were used to accompany many festivities. It is thus a part of the culture of China and had its origin there; eventually, it spread to other cultures and societies. ~ Wikipedia
