SHOOTING FIREWORKS

PREVIOUS / NEXT

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 25 september 2015

This post is about shooting fireworks and other colorful lights at night.
Unfortunately there is no right setting that will get what you want straight away and you need to be able to quickly change your settings while missing as few shots as possible.

This is the way I go about it:

Stay in Manual mode.
Set your AF to continuous mode in a 9 dots or 21 dots mode.
Adapt your aperture to your lens (most likely you are with a wide angle and f4 if more than enough to get everything neat.
Set your ISO to an average usable value and check the speed you need to get the right exposure with this ISO

Start shooting and check immediately the contrast and colors.
If you're not far from what you're looking for, just adapt the speed, otherwise change your ISO accordingly and it will all be about the speed (fireworks require speed).
