Fireworks Picture Taking Tips

It’s the 4th of July and that means that we’re all going to be watching the sky light up with fireworks.

Anyone that’s struggled to get a decent picture of the light show in the sky, should listen closely to today’s tip.

If you don’t understand what it takes to be successful, it’s nearly impossible to get that perfect shot as the flashes pop above you.

With just a few quick adjustments to what you’ve been doing can easily improve your results.

The flash is useless, so turn it off and look for either a night or better yet, a fireworks setting.

For even better results, look for a ‘burst’ mode, which take a lot of pictures in succession.
