Edit Note: This discussion thread was started two years ago, and is full of great advice and example photos. As it's now getting a bit long, a new thread has been created to continue the topic: Fireworks Tips and Tricks -- Lets Share -- 2014


It is time to start preparing for summertime fireworks.

Many of our members will have the opportunity to take their Nikon's out for a challenging shoot in a few weeks.

Our Canadian members have Canada Day, in the USA they will celebrate Independence Day, and in France the big event is Bastille Day.

Every year around this time we refer back to an article that was first posted nine years ago by Lyle Stavast. That is the starting point, and we now have new members with new tips and tricks to share.

I invite those members with excellent examples of fireworks shooting to post them here-- and further, to describe the proper shooting methods you used to make your incredible images.

The invitation is out -- now-- Let's share the goods my friends!

Here is one of mine:

Nikon D2X on Manual exposure mode, Matrix Metering, 35-70mm f/2.8D AF @ 35mm, f/3.5, 1/50s, ISO 400, handheld (impossible to use a tripod in that crowd, even when we were there 3 hours before the event.
