25 Inspirational Examples of Firework Photography

Fireworks are quite fascinating to watch and they are mostly used for celebrating any major event. Amazing displays of firework are held thorough the world on New Year. At this occasion photographers come into action and get their lenses ready for some amazing clicks. Taking the right photographs is very important and when it comes to fireworks, extra care needs to be taken. It is not possible for some people to capture the fireworks, as they don’t have proper knowledge and experience. Apart from the few special settings on your camera, you need to note the perfect angle and length of any shot. Most of the firework shots are distant shots and they can be somewhat challenging.

To capture a firework, you will need to adjust the focal length of the camera frame to have a better shot. Professional photographers recommend using a wide angle lens in order to get hold of the shot, right as the fires light the night sky up. You will need to wait for the right moment in order to get the best picture. Doing some experiments on your own will help in taking the perfect shots. If, you take an image with the help of wide lens, you can always get rid of the huge dimensions of the picture by cropping it. Experienced photographers don’t make use of the editing tools to develop an interesting image. They use proper techniques and settings to get a satisfactory image. Let’s see a few important firework photography tips.

I. Select the right lens

Having the right lens is very important for firework photography. You cannot manage to get excellent images by having a poor quality or petty lens. There are certain functions in professional lens that allow, you to capture long and well focused pictures. Excellent results can only be expected after adjusting the lens. There are two settings MF and AF. MF setting must be used while capturing the fireworks and AF once you are done.

II. Adjust the shutter speed

Adjusting the shutter speed for firework photographs is very important. You will need a lengthy shot of few seconds to capture the colorful, sharp and sleek trails of fireworks. It is all a matter of seconds and you will need to act quickly. In the beginning, it will take some time to adjust the shutter speed. You can try different experiments and then develop your own sense and skill of firework photography. Your sense of creativity will help in coming up with some interesting shots.

III. Don’t shake the camera

Invest in a tripod stand and capture still images. Fireworks need to be captured in a perfect manner, as any mistake could lead to poor picture quality. You can use a cable release and control the shutter movement easily. Many experienced photographers are using the professional remotes for digital cameras.

IV. Just take the right photographs

Bulb exposure technique is the best for taking different firework explosions at the same time. In bulb exposure, you will actually take a lengthy shot and use the camera in manual mode. You need to adjust the shutter speed yourself and make sure that you get the proper settings done, under the bulb mode.
