Here are four tips from a professional photographer on how to get better photos of fireworks this weekend . . .


1. Turn your flash off. If you don't, everything over ten feet away will end up underexposed. If you want to take a photo of someone with the fireworks behind them, set it up so their face is lit by a light behind you.



2. Don't just photograph the sky. Photos of fireworks with nothing in the foreground tend to be boring, so try to get the skyline in there too. Or try something like a shot of your kid from behind while they're watching.


3. Turn off the HDR feature. It stands for "high dynamic range," and it makes your camera take three quick photos at different exposures, then combines them into one image to make the lighting look more natural.


A lot of cell phone cameras have an HDR feature now, but it works best with still images where nothing's moving. If you use it with fireworks, they'll just look blurry.


4. Take photos with a long exposure. That's where the shutter stays open a few seconds longer and lets more light in. But not all camera phones let you do it, and you pretty much have to use a tripod to make it work.

Can't the government let us enjoy ANYTHING anymore? They ruined smoking, they ruined football, they ruined carbs . . . and now they're trying to ruin FIREWORKS.


A new study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found that fireworks are terrible for your health.


When one explodes, tiny particles 30 times thinner than a human hair are left in the air. And if you ingest too many of them, there could be short and long-term effects . . . especially if you have lung problems.


You might cough, have shortness of breath, or have an asthma attack. But they ultimately might lead to a heart attack, a stroke, or EARLY DEATH if you have heart or lung disease.


The number of firework particles in the air peaks from 9:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. on July 4th . . . but usually they're all gone by noon the next day. So if you have lung issues, the researchers say you might want to stay indoors on the night of the 4th.

For the Fourth of July, WalletHub.com analyzed all 50 states to find out which ones are the most PATRIOTIC.
 
 
They looked at eight different factors, including military enlistment rates . . . how many people voted in the last election . . . and how often people volunteer.  And according to them, the most patriotic state is . . . VIRGINIA.
 
 
The rest of the top ten goes Washington, Colorado, Idaho, Alaska, Maine, North Carolina, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Georgia.
 
 
The LEAST patriotic state is New York, which has the fewest veterans per capita.  It also has the second-lowest number of volunteers, and it's 46th in voter turnout.
 
 
The rest of the ten least patriotic states are New Jersey, Rhode Island, Utah, West Virginia, Arkansas, Connecticut, Illinois, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania.
 
 
Florida came in 14th . . . Texas came in 33rd . . . California is 35th . . . and Massachusetts came in 40th.
 
 
The study also found states that voted Republican in the 2012 election are slightly more patriotic than states that went Democrat.  But it's so close, it's basically a tie.

"South Park" will begin its 19th season later this year . . . and Trey Parker and Matt Stone don't have any plans to stop.

And Matt says, quote, "We won't stop until we get canceled.  We're renewing.  They have to [effing] cancel us!"

With donuts, at least you KNOW you're stuffing your face.  One glazed donut from Krispy Kreme has 10 grams of sugar.  But here are eight things you might not know have even MORE sugar than that . . .
 
 
1.  A Whopper from Burger King has 12 grams of sugar.  So a little more than a donut.  A Quarter Pounder with bacon from McDonald's has about the same.
 
2.  A six-inch meatball sub from Subway . . . also 12 grams.
 
3.  A side of coleslaw at KFC . . . 14 grams.
 
4.  An Activia blueberry yogurt . . . 16 grams, which is more than one-and-a-half donuts.  Obviously there's other stuff in there that's GOOD for you though.
 
5.  A large latte at Starbucks . . . 17 grams of sugar.
 
6.  Eight ounces of orange juice . . . 20 grams, which is like two glazed donuts.
 
7.  A 20-ounce Vitamin Water . . . 33 grams of sugar, which is almost three-and-a-half donuts.
 
8.  A 12-ounce can of Coke . . . 39 grams of sugar, which is a gram less than you'd get in FOUR donuts.  A 16-ounce bottle of Snapple Peach Tea also has 39 grams.

'The pain is astounding!' Man tries to wear a pair of sky-high heels for an entire day to prove that women are 'wimps' - but lasts less than 12 hours before admitting defeat...Brandon Cohen, a Los Angeles-based video correspondent, wanted to better understand why woman always complain about wearing stilettos...
 
If you really want to understand women, you should walk a mile in their shoes - and that is exactly what one man did in an effort to understand why the opposite sex 'won't stop complaining' about wearing high heels. 
Brandon Cohen, a Los Angeles-based video correspondent for BroBible, set out to wear heels for an entire workday to show what 'wimps' women are, documenting his entire experience in a newly-released video clip. However, his plan started to go awry the moment he traded his usual comfy boat shoes for strappy stilettos, confessing that he was in total agony as soon as he put the heels on.  
'Oh god,' he says in the video shared on BroBible's YouTube channel this week. 'I am already in so much pain. It's astounding.'

Seth MacFarlane returns as Mark Wahlberg's foul-mouthed talking teddy bear Ted.  He also wrote and directed both movies.  This one's about his struggle to prove he's a person.
 
 
He gets married, but then the government reacts by declaring he's just property.  In addition to revoking Ted's marriage license, that ruling shuts down his plans to adopt.  So he hires Amanda Seyfried to fight for his rights in court.
 
 
"Mad Men's" John Slattery is the prosecutor, Morgan Freeman plays a legendary civil rights lawyer, and Tom Brady has a memorable cameo as himself when the guys try to harvest his man-seed so Ted's wife can have a baby.
