Alex Rubio (07.03.09, 11:24 AM): Thanks Rob, I will try that...
Rob (07.03.09, 10:59 AM): Alex, that wont matter much. The fireworks are streaking through the air to start with. Besides, you are shooting at night, most likely into an open dark sky. The burst of light from the explosion will only last about 1/4 of a second. You can pretty much keep the shutter open for 15 to 30 second and still get great shots. That is also another way of getting multiple fireworks into the same shot that were set off after one an other.
Alex Rubio (07.03.09, 10:26 AM): Great, thanks Michael... Won't the slow shutter speed cause blurryness or streaking?, Looking forward to the video..
michael andrew (07.03.09, 9:40 AM): Im working on a video for this. In short, you want: a wide angle lens, tripod, low ISO, slow shutterspeed and to be up wind (otherwise smoke will get into your shots). as always with landscapes shoot at f8 or smaller, and try to avoid camera shake (use a timer or shutter release cable on bulb if possible)
Alex Rubio (07.03.09, 8:21 AM): Good question Kelly, how do you shoot fireworks to make them come out astonishing... Would you give us some tips Michael? Thanks...
