With the Fourth of July this Sunday, many of us will be enjoying a fireworks display. Capturing fireworks in a photograph can be tricky, but with these quick tips you’ll be snapping better shots in no time.
- Turn off the flash.
- On an SLR, increase your ISO and lower the f-stop. This can make photos look a bit grainy, so take a few test shots.
- If you’re a point-and-shoot user, turn to the night or fireworks setting. There may be a delay between when you press the shutter and when the photo is taken, so try to anticipate when the blast will light up the sky.
- Stabilize your camera with a tripod to get a crisp image.
- Zoom in on the action, letting the fireworks fill most of the frame.
