Photographing Fireworks

27 Nov 2010 9:03PM
Settings from my crib sheet, it has a slightly different take, but I like to capture them exploding:

Fireworks & Lightning :

Shoot Raw

Tripod/Remote commander and torch required take IS off lens

Use mirror lock up

Manual focus to infinity

Manual Mode use shutter speed of 0.8 to 2 seconds

Aperture f8 for lightning and distant fireworks f16 for nearer fireworks
open or close aperture slightly if too dark or over exposed
