Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you’re out enjoying friends, family and FREEDOM this 4th of July.
I wanted to share a quick snap of some fireworks and let you know how you can get your own tonight.
This shot was actually from the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at Beaver Creek Mountain last year, but it was the first time I tried my hand at taking shots of fireworks (and did so while holding a screaming 2 year old).
To get your own fireworks shots:
Turn your camera to Bulb mode (where you can select the times the shutter opens and closes).
Set your camera on a tripad or steady surface.
Click the shutter to open it, and wait a few seconds. Click it again.
Check your photo and see if it picked up too much or too little light- then try to keep it open longer or shorter for the next fireworks!
Of course, if you want an even steadier shot, use a remote for your shutter to keep any shaking from your hands to a minimum.
