One member of my photography group throws an annual Fourth of July party complete with fireworks, weather permitting. This year we decided to make photographing fireworks our next assignment. Photographing fireworks is not an easy feat. And I have a long way to go to get good at it.
We got some help from a photographer friend and found some articles on the subject. The first article “How to Photograph Fireworks” is from B&H Photo. It’s by Todd Vorenkamp, someone you should check out if you’re into photography! Digital Photography School (dPS) has some articles on photographing fireworks. One by Darren Rowse, the editor and founder of dPS, and it is also titled “How to Photograph Fireworks.” Another is by Darlene Hildebrandt and it’s called “15 Tips for Successful Fireworks Photography.” These are two photographers you should also check out!
We had our reveal meeting yesterday so I can share my ten shots with you now. The first four photos were taken with my iPhone 6. The remaining six photos were taken with my Nikon D3200 and the 18-55mm lens.
I like the ones taken with my iPhone better. What do you think?
