Photo Tip

Taking fireworks can be tricky and challenging. First of all be sure to choose your vantage point carefully. You should think about your shots beforehand too. Dont forget to consider the foreground and background elements of the scene either, as it will come in handy to plan on how you might want to incorporate them in the picture.Turning your flash off and setting your camera to manual mode allows you to control the exposure and aperture yourself. A good starting place for your settings is ISO 100, f/11, at 1/2 second. If the photos are looking too dim, vary the shutter speed while keeping the aperture the same.


Get inspired to capture your own unique firework experience!
