Suggested Camera Settings
- Mode select to MANUAL
- Aperture to f8-f11
- Shutter speed 30 seconds (to start with)
- ISO 100
Definitely you will need to use your tripod and cable/remote shutter release. A good tip here is to make sure you have a piece of black card with you.
Release the shutter whilst holding the black card directly in front of your lens. when you see the first indication of any fireworks, remove the card until the firework has finished, replace the card until you see the next firework.
If your shutter isn’t staying open long enough switch it to BULB, you will have to keep your shutter open manually in this mode.
Remember these camera settings are a suggested starting point you will have to adjust your own settings to satisfy the situation/subject you are trying to capture, and how you want the image to look.
