How To Photograph Fireworks.

By Posted in - How I Shoot & Photography Posts & Photography Tips & Travel Blog on July 2nd, 2013

I decided with the 4th of July holiday upon us I would provide our readers with some great tips on how to photograph fireworks.

This is actually a re-post from last year but since we have so many new readers I figured it would be appropriate to post it again. That way all of our new readers can discover how to take fantastic firework photos and our long term readers can get a nice refresher!

So if you’re planning on watching the fireworks this year be sure to bring your camera!

Although shooting fireworks may seem complicated (burst of bright light in a pitch black environment) and intimidating, it really isn’t. In fact, it can be downright easy. And with some experimentation, you’ll be able to create some unique images that you will be dying to share with your friends & family!

Above: Both photos shot with an aperture of f/22 and at an ISO of 1250. Photo on left has a shutter speed of 30 seconds, the photo on the right is 20 seconds.

For the full article and step by step instructions including ISO, aperture, shutter speed settings and how to use the manual setting on your camera be sure to visit…

<—–For an additional in-depth look at how Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO & Depth of Field work be sure to check out my ebook, Getting Out Of Auto, which has clear, easy to understand descriptions of each setting.


Happy Fourth of July!
