Photographing Fireworks


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.
