Since the 4th of July is approaching very soon, I thought I would post a few tips on photographing fireworks. Fireworks can be very difficult to photograph but with the correct settings, you can get some awesome shots.
1. Use a tripod
2. Put your shutter speed on the “bulb” setting
3. use a cable release if you have it. If not, you will need to hold the button down with your finger.
4. Try using fstops between F8 and F16.
5. ISO should be on 100
6. Do not try to auto focus, set the camera to manual and focus on the farthest point away from the camera
7. Turn your flash off
I hope you find this information useful. Send me your photos, I would love to see them.
