How to photograph fireworks

Photography Tips: Fireworks are an amazing sight - it certainly captures the camera very well. Be prepared and set up to maximize your chances for great results.

1. Where the fireworks will be predicted so you can set up in a good place. Most firework shows don't last very long so if you have to move during the show, you might miss it!

2. Keep the camera as far as possible. Use a tripod and a cable release so you can trigger the shutter without touching the camera.

3. Set your camera to ISO 100 for a clear camera shot. The fireworks are bright so you can use an aperture of f / 8 or smaller.

৪. Just before the fireworks go off, press the shutter release and release the shutter after the fireworks burst. Review your photograph and adjust your framing and aperture if needed for the next shot.
