Photographing Kids Watching Fireworks

We got together with our good friend Becky Rockwood last night to shoot our kids sitting in front of some fireworks. I tried several different settings some with studio lighting and some with natural light and high ISO settings. Here are my results:

(above) Canon 5D Mark II, Settings: 1/125 @ f/4.0,  ISO: 200 -Studio Flash
Lens: EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM

Canon 5D Mark II, Settings: 1.0 sec @ f/7.1, Focal Length 27 mm, ISO 250 -No Flash, Lens: EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM
I think I had my camera sitting on the ground, but may have shaken it a little bit because it is a little blurry… a tripod would have been good 🙂

Canon 5D Mark II, Settings: 1/80 sec at f/2.8, Focal Length 35mm, ISO: 6400 – No Flash, Lens: EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM
100% is downsized and edited 🙂

With a little downsizing and editing magic, I did get this on iStock: http://www.istockphoto.com/file_closeup.php?id=17002305

I will be shooting more fireworks on the 4th of July, so I will post some more shots and settings after that!
