    I was using a tripod for the first time but it was my Dad's very old tripod and despite others helping me I just had trouble timing my shots. I got a few good shots but i definitely need more practice with this particular task. It was exciting though.

    This was the first time I ever shot with a group and I enjoyed it. I do not believe I met everyone but those I did meet were very nice and I look forward to the next gathering.

    Lori,

    Since Asbury will be doing fireworks throught the summer; a few of us were talking about doing the fireworks again next Wednesday.

    Yes - meet at the boardwalk in front of the pizza place. I will not be there, I'm in Las Vegas on a business trip. I'm looking for someone to faciltate introductions. If no one volunteers just look for a bunch of people with cameras and introduce yourself. Sorry I won't be there.

    R we still meeting in Asbury Park at the pizza place? I just want to be sure -u thanks.

    Most of you know each other by now but I would really appreciate one of you taking the lead on this to make sure the new people feel welcomed.

    Sorry for the confusion. Keep posting if you want to meet each other for dinner. I was just going to grab a slice of pizza at the place where we are meeting.

    If anyone has any questions please call me at[masked]-7469. I will be away from Monday through Thursday.

    I forgot that I am away for business this week and will not be able to attend. I hate to cancel this because I can't be there. Can someone host this for me?

    You just have to 1) keep an eye on the weather and post a note if it looks like the fireworks will be cancelled; 2) greet people and facilitate introductions 3) Ask who are the experience photographers in the group and see if anyone wants to give some tips on shooting fireworks.

    continued on next comment....

    went last night but no fireworks
    i think the pier is a good vantage point, but you will need a telephoto zoom lens that extends to about 200mm. it shows the asbury park boardwalk beneath and hopefull the full burst of the firworks. we'll see next week

    is this still on?

    July 18, 2012

  • Sue S.

    good point Alan, if anyone else has comments on the best location please add them here.

    July 18, 2012

  • Alan W.

    Yes tripods are allowed. I plan on shooting the fireworks tomorrow night from the pier in ocean grove. I have found that being as close as you would like to be to watch fireworks is not the optimum location to photograph them. Unless you are looking for real close ups as opposed to the entire burst. Will post a comment if the weather holds and i actually get out there
