Photographing fireworks can be a little tricky at first. The following are some tips that may help you:
- Make sure there aren’t any trees or buildings obstructing your view. If you arrive early you can scope out a good spot.
- Turn off the flash. The flash will only help at a fairly close range. Some cameras have a fireworks or night mode so the camera will adjust in low light conditions by increasing the exposure time.
- Use a tripod. A long exposure time without a tripod will cause camera shake, which will result in blurry photos. If you don’t have a tripod you can place the camera on a steady surface or try leaning against a wall to steady yourself.
Take as many images as you can. If you are using a digital camera you can always delete the ones you aren’t happy with.
