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 😊
My Photo settings: F11 1/30 ISO 100 (auto white balance / focal length 80 mm)

You can use these settings for any night photography.
Have a blessed day and let’s go out there and get creative!
