At this time of year in the UK there are many displays of fireworks to celebrate Guy Fawkes night, or the more PC term of Bonfire night. I have seen some great shots on the forum of fireworks, Sonolta's in particular, and I was wondering if people had any tips for photographing fireworks.
Some thoughts so far:
- Should I use Bulb exposure and close the shutter after the firework has exploded?
- What aperture? I'm thinking quite large (f11-16) as this is landscape?
- Is a tripod a must or do I stand a chance with handheld?
- I'm guessing my beercan would be a good option for shots of explosions in the sky, and then something wider for shots with background in?
Any advice greatly recieved.
