An article from :iconroy204: on the subject of Fireworks Photography.

This is a somewhat more "advanced" tutorial (in the technical sense) that requires some knowledge of what is aperture, shutter speed and focus controls at least but it is also a fun and entertaining technique.

We recommend that you read the following articles before going for this one:

The Making of a Photograph
Understanding Depth of Field

Let us know what you think!

Thank you for posting this! I'm just getting into photography and desperately need a better camera (you can't even turn the flash off on mine :tears: ), but if and when I scrape up enough money for one I'd love to try something like this.

Was having some trouble judging the correct aperture, this helps a lot, thanks!

Great tutorial! Question: Some lens have the infinity symbol. The standard 18-55mm Nikkor lens does not. I've read the manual and didn't find any direction on how to focus to infinity. Some people say turning the focus ring all the way to the right will do it. Any suggestions?

Hey there :)
I have a favour to ask of you... I am currently doing my Year 12 HSC (Australian: Higher School Certificate, ie. Last year of high school) Information Processes and Technology major project, Which is to be a website on photography and cameras.

I saw your tutorial and was wondering if I would able to feature it on the site I make. Of course, You will be fully credited with links to your deviantart profile and deviation page.

I will also send you a link at the completion of the project if you would wish to see.
I would really appreciate if you agreed, but if you don’t, no hard feelings :aww:
