Fireworks Photography



Fireworks photography can be a daunting experience. Here is a simple set of steps to follow while clicking night photos, especially fireworks.

1 Use a tripod (Important)
2 Manual exposure & set focus to “infinity”
3 Use “bulb” mode
4 Shutter speed can be between 2 to 10 seconds. Use a “remote” shutter release cable to minimize shake.
5 ISO between 100 or 200
6 Aperture between f/8 tof/16
7 Lens: Medium – wide angle focal length
8 No flash
9 No polarizing filter
10 White balance to”Tungsten”…”Daylight” gives great colors. Much better than using “Auto”

Usually, 4 sec. at f/8 and ISO 100 gives the best results.
