Tips for Photographing Fireworks - Get ready! :)

Taking photographs of fireworks is great fun -- and very challenging. Veteran photographers know these tricks, and I wanted to share some with you.

Now, you can take photos as well as the stereotypical creepy-uncle-photographer.

1) Get your camera on a stable surface. 

2) Turn off your flash.

3) Get something else in the photo besides the exploding firework to give perspective and set the scene.

4) Set your focus once on a distant light, then switch to manual focus for the rest of the fireworks show.

More advanced tricks, for people with fancier cameras:

5) Do you have auto-bracketing? Set it up so that your exposures are 1, 2, and 4 seconds apart. That would be -1, 0, and +1 with the anchor at 2 seconds. Since you never know how many fireworks will explode at once, this adds a random timing element to combat the random timing of the burst pattern.

6) (intermediate tip) Set yourself up in Aperture priority and set the aperture to as low a number as possible. If you don't feel comfy enough in Manual, then Aperture priority mode will figure out your Shutter speed. 

7) Turn off auto NR (Noise-Reduction). If it is on, the computer in your camera will take an extra long time to get rid of the noise after each shot… and you'll miss valuable bursts!

8) Keep your finger on the power-off button! If you are in the middle of a long exposure, and you have just seen a pleasing pattern of fireworks with your human eyes, TURN OFF the camera. This will close the shutter and complete the photo, saving you from possibly covering up the nice firework with a new burst.

Time Off

I decided that I was a little burnt out from the 6 straight months of traveling on the road, so I decided to lay low here in Richmond Virginia for a few days. Since that decision, I've been pounded nightly by bad storms, and scorched by 100 degree + heat during the day. We even have another storm coming tonight. Fun! lol. 

I've been catching up on a ton of backlogged work, and I still have more to go. I noticed surprisingly that not too many of you guys are on pinterest, so that was kind of a dud post the other day. I was trying to help everyone build their networks with plussers on there, but I guess it's still a little early for the pinheads! Lol. 

I'm also just getting started on instagram (jessijune), and my Twitter which I'll try to be using more of for small updates is @modeljessi, and I'm on every other social network known to man, but I still Plus the most! 

In sports news: Congratulations to La Roja, and the Spain national team for winning the Euro cup, and possibly solidifying their place as the greatest team of all time. Great game today guys! 

I just got this shot in today, and my first thought was "I think this is a shot that G+ will like!" because I'm slowly learning the tastes of the audience here. Am I right!?!

Love you guys!!

Oh yes.  I rented a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM from +LensRentals.com and they arrived today. (I also rented a Canon 14mm beauty!)

What a gorgeous soft DoF it gives - this is in my house tonight, overhead lighting 2.8 aperture.  Post in PS ;)

Oh and +James Brandon I used AI Servo here, hahaha :D
