The Photography Network - PictureSocial

As 4th of July approaches, remember to brush up on your fireworks photo techniques. PictureCorrect has an article on this if you are interested:
http://www.picturecorrect.com/tips/how-to-photograph-fireworks/

Quick Technique:

Camera Settings

Mode: M, Manual

Auto focus: Off or Manual

ISO: 100

Shutter speed: Bulb, B

Aperture: vary from F5.6 to F11

Focal length: Infinity

Once you hear explosion, you start to press and hold a remote switch button. Then you look at the fireworks showing their magic until it disappears and then release the button. Normally,
it takes about 5-9 second depending on how long of each
firework shot is.

I hope to see a lot of great fireworks photos on PictureSocial next week - enjoy :)
