Photographing Fireworks Pt. 1
Photographing fireworks is one we all want to crack - and believe it or not it's not that difficult once you have a few pointers.
Think of the photography in blocks and ask yourself what you need to start photographing fireworks? A slow shutter speed because it's dark and you want to capture the movement across the sky. A tripod so you don't get camera shake. Manual exposure so can experiment to find the perfect exposure for your situation.
The first step is to find a good location to photograph the firework display from. Big organised displays are always impressive but can be crowded and not always the best place to shoot fireworks from. So go early and have a look around the area.
Once you have found the right spot it's worth setting up your camera. Think about which lenses to use, pre set a slow shutter speed and a low iso so when the show starts you're ready to capture the action.
Ultimate Beginners Course customer: I bought a DSLR and had been poking around the internet and stumbled upon some of your videos on YouTube or where ever. I found you to be easy to listen to and understand, you seem the kind a fellow I'd see myself sitting down for a beer with - that's why I haven't done any other online training, no-one else has really interested me.
