I shot several bursts of just fireworks against the sky, but decided later to try and back up and get the wide view. Using a tripod, I shot a longer exposure on RAW, and then pulled lots of detail from the shadows during post processing, which allowed the fireworks to light up the house and surrounding trees.

Technical info: Nikon D610 w/ 24-70mm lens at 24 mm. f/8, ISO 200, exposure time 4 seconds.

Barn portrait

One of the senior portraits I shot for my niece inside an old barn. This is all ambient light. There was enough coming through the front to light her up well, while allowing the details of the inside of the barn to show up. The exposure was also long enough to blow out the outside light coming in through the cracks.

Technical details: Nikon D610. 1/30 @ f/2.8, ISO 200. 24mm
