How to Practice before Firework Photo Shoot
Thanks for reading this series on firework photography. I would love to see some photos from your firework photo project. You can share links to your photos in the comments below.
On with the topic for this week.
To prepare for your firework photo project, practice night photography with a simple setup. You can accomplish this in your home or outside with simple like street lights or your porch light. If you want try using the stars. However, I would not recommend trying stars if you are working to learn your settings for fireworks.
Fireworks are relatively close in comparison to the stars, so go with something closer. This blog post is being posted just a few days before the 4th of July when the US is lighting up the skies with fireworks to celebrate our independence. A quick practice may surprise you how easy this project is. So, grab your camera and try this out.
Get your camera and tripod or skip your tripod if you are going to try one of the movement methods. You only need to practice a little to reinforce the settings so you will have some confidence in the results. If you haven't read my previous blogs or watched my instructions on YouTube here are the links (again):

Don't forget to share your firework photos. I would love to see them.

I am glad you found my blog. I am a photographer with a passion for awesome shots. I go to great lengths to capture many of my photos. I will re-visit a location over and over knowing there is a spectacular photo just waiting to be had if I am there at the right time. I also enjoy finding how to do some abstract projects (check out my time-lapse post) and will be writing about them.
Send me a note via my contact page for some projects you would like to see me try and write about. I am not afraid to try almost any project. Doing the obscure forces me to do things that I don't do with the typical photo shoot and helps me learn even more.
