As Independence day approaches, let’s talk about photographing fireworks! They can be a difficult subject to capture with your camera. I’ll give you some helpful tips over the next few days to help with this tricky shooting situation.
Tanya’s Tip for FIREWORKS #1:
One important thing is to STEADY your camera. Some of this weeks tips will require you use your camera manually and it needs to be stabilized.
In some cases, if you don’t have a tripod, you can try leaning against something for extra stability and secure your elbows against your body or on a stable surface. You can also try to find a surface to place the camera on. But for the extra long exposures that we’ll be using for fireworks, a tripod will be best!
A TRIPOD is a great resource! Do you have one?
