View Full Version : Shooting Fireworks?
26th of June 2010 (Sat), 15:09
Hey everyone. I was looking for some advice on how to shoot fireworks. I want to give it a shot tonight.
From what I've gathered from reading...
3-4 second exposures.
Am I correct in assuming this? Will a Nifty Fifty or 10-20 work well for shooting? And I should focus on Infinity, correct?

Bit late replying to this question but there is a really good thread on this subject here: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=341145
How did your shoot go?

Went horrible. I was on my friends roof, and I thought we were going to have a clear view, but we had trees blocking the view.
Going to try again this coming weekend!

That's a shame. :(
There's another good read here for fireworks: http://www.usa.canon.com/dlc/controller?act=GetArticleAct&articleID=1666&fromTips=1&WT.mc_id=EM1006EO03004
Good luck next time round :)

Shot my first fireworks a few weeks ago so I did a bit of reading. Here is the baseline I found as the best to start with from all the reading: f/8 : 4sec : ISO100
My shots came out great and I was very pleased with my first attempt. Good luck. Here is a good read.
