Firework Photography Tips

Hello world!

I really hope everyone had a wonderful and safe 4th of July.

In this weeks photography class the topic was about fireworks and how to capture them. The instructor told us what setting to use, so I decided to try it out myself.

Here are the steps:

#1 – You need to be on a tripod and use a shutter release button (if you don’t have one use the camera self timer).

#2 – Keep your ISO as low as you can to avoided any grain.

#3 – Use manual mode and set an aperture of f11 – f16.

#4 – Set your lens to manual focus, frame your shot and focus it.

#5 – Press the shutter and let the camera do its magic.

**Please remember that if your lens has a vibration reduction switch make sure you set it to off while on a tripod**

This is what I was able to capture and let me say that It was a lot of fun 😊

You can view the rest in my firework photos in my photography section

You can use these settings for any night photography.

Have a blessed day and let’s go out there and get creative!
