As last week was New Years Eve, everybody had they're cameras ready to shoot the moment before the sky would go loose. And the fireworks will be gone fast! Here are some tips to help you.
Fireworks are the most beautiful accessory a holiday needs. The anatomy of a firework is similar with a snowflake. They are very bright and beautiful to watch, but they don’t last for more than a minute.
That’s why you have to be prepared for it. Plant your camera (loaded with film of course) in a steady position, set it on Bulb mode (you need a long exposure) load and shoot. The exposure should be made for as long as you need too, to catch more fireworks in the same pictures (1 minute) or just one (a couple of seconds). Happy Holidays everyone!
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
