Re: Photographing fireworks

Great read Ian, I'll have to try these tricks. Will also look to invest in a tripod at some point.

Thanks very much! It's nice to get positive feedback

Is anyone else here going to shoot fireworks (with a camera I mean!) this year?

Re: Photographing fireworks

I am going to give it ago again.

Its going to be raining here....time to test the E1+50F2 weather sealing tonight.

Saturday will be calm and clear....if the met office is correct.....so we should get some nice shots.

Thanks for the article Ian.

Nicely timed. I'm going to a display tomorrow evening.
Side issue, if its an organised do, get there early as carparking is often the biggest problem.

Re: Photographing fireworks

Ian,

As always, a useful set of tips. I often find myself passing these nuggets on to people who ask me how to take certain pix.

Some may find high-rise blocks dull to live in but for one night a year they are great!

Nick
