Tips for Photographing Fireworks
Last year I was so excited to try and capture fireworks images when we were in Tahoe celebrating the 4th of July. I was fairly pleased with the images I got despite the fact I did not have a tripod (a big mistake).
This year, I won't be stateside to celebrate America's big day, but for those of you who are and are hoping to great some great shots, you should check out the tutorials listed below:
Digital Photography School-- we love DPS, they are always a favorite place for getting great info and tutorials--fireworks included.
National Geographic --you'll find great tips and gorgeous photos to get you inspired.
Ken Rockwell--he has a no frills tutorial with all the pertinent info, including camera settings (but no photo examples).
This Week in Photos--gives you all the info necessary to help you capture all that dazzling light!
So go out there and shoot those fireworks and be sure to share some images on our Facebook wall or post links to your Flickr images in the comments below. Happy 4th of July! Have a fun and safe holiday!!
