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!
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs.

At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
