I’m pretty proud of myself for getting some cool firework images. I’ve never tried to get a good shot, I guess because I’ve always wanted to just sit and watch. So here’s what I captured. I’ll post my settings in case you’re wondering. 🙂 It’s actually quite easy to do.
PLEASE NOTE: I do not claim to have the “BEST” pictures here, just the best (and easiest) way I have found. 🙂
1. Make sure your children aren’t running in circles around YOU. They
WILL might run into you.
2. Adjust your settings. I like to keep my ISO as low as I can in ALL situations, so in all of these I stayed at 100. SLOW shutter speeds are KEY here. I tried 2.5 seconds and 5 seconds. Let me tell you, anything longer is like waiting on turtles to cross the road.
3. I think the main thing is just getting a good and steady place to hold your camera. A tripod would be ideal, but I’m not trying to set up my tripod in the middle of a firework show. 😉
4. Shoot away!
5. The best part: Pictures of fireworks require NO EDITING! WAHOOOOOO!
