Taking photos of fireworks may sometimes be tricky. I’ll be giving you a few tips that will help you when you want to capture fireworks. Learn more after the break.
I love fireworks! I really do, I ohh and ahh worse than a child and I have been known to clap my hands in excitement at a fireworks display. My best tip for taking firework photos – in fact my best tip for all Lomography photos – is ‘keep it simple’. Lomography is only as complicated as you make it…
First you need a camera with a bulb setting! Next you need a high ISO film – I used the Lomography CN 800 film for these. And now you need your hands – to hold down the shutter button with and simply put – that is it.
Just set your camera to the bulb setting, point you camera towards the firework and hold the button down for as long as you want – I held it down for the generation of the firework length… and there you are, beautiful firework photos.
Note: You can use a tripod if you want – but I think that this just adds another complication to the process, the fireworks don’t move in straight lines, so any movement you do get won’t detract from the photos. Also the viewfinders with Lomography cameras aren’t particularly accurate so I prefer to hold them with my hands.

What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
