Photographing fireworks is indeed challenging, but not impossible. With a little knowledge about you camera settings and feature, you can capture those amazing photos of fireworks. Following we have listed some easy-to-follow tips for you to capture better photos of festivities and fireworks.
1. Experiment with the focal length. Try different shots of the burst. If you want to capture the details of the burst, then use a zoom lens.
2. Bulb mode is one function in your camera that will allow you to capture action at the peak of the burst. It allows you to create times exposures based on changing conditions.
3. If possible use a remote shutter release to avoid touching camera again and again. Press the shutter as soon as the firework is launched and hold it until the burst has faded. It usually lasts for a few seconds.
4. Make sure you take pictures of the first fireworks. If there isn’t enough wind, you will end-up with lot of smoke covering the sky resulting into unclear shots. The first few explosions of the fireworks are usually the sharpest. Don't loose this opportunity.
5. Frame your shots: typically there are two ways you can frame your shot. One is vertical and the other is horizontal. although both of these work pretty well with firework photography, but experts do believe that vertical frame work better than horizontal because of the only reason that there is a lot of vertical motion in fireworks.
