Learn how to photograph fireworks and make them amazing in Photoshop in just 5 minutes!
Fireworks!! Everyone wants to capture the amazing light we know as fireworks or sparklers. Here were my settings last year:
Lens: I used a 14-24mm lens, but your setting could be different. I was very close to the action!
Other Gear: Tripod is required and remote release if you have one.
Once your exposure is set its all about the timing. Do you want more fireworks to be in the frame or less? Is there a really nice cityscape to go along with your fireworks? Take all that into consideration...that can make your fireworks photos really dynamic. My area doesn't really have any nice cityscapes but I might search for some this year.
Second part of this video I comp'd a few photos together in Photoshop. It was super easy and only took a few minutes. Resizing the photos will make the end result more dynamic with a 3D effect.
