LIoP will re-open on the 22nd of June 2020
Happy New Year. As we close this year 2018, we thought it might be good to do an updated blog post on taking photos of fireworks. There are usually some displays happening.
When teaching the beginners level at LIoP, we discuss exposure and one part of the triangle is shutter speed.
When we look at images of fireworks and discuss how we achieve this, it is normal to think that you might need a fast shutter speed to freeze the fast moving fireworks. It is actually the opposite. We need a long shutter speed, we are talking about 2 to 20 seconds long. So here are some pointers for what you need.
It takes practice but is a lot of fun and of course rewarding. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year from us all at LIoP.
