Hi guys I'm planing to take some fireworks this coming new year
Never done this before
I need some tips on how to do it the wright way
I'm using nex7 with 18-200 tamron lens
Appreciate all your help
Dark frame subtraction off
Shutter open when you hear the shell launch
Close shutter before the burst starts to fade
Alternately you can use a set shutter (2 to 5 seconds) speed, but the timing is a bit harder. Or you can keep the shutter open and use a black card to cover the lens between bursts to get multiple bursts in one shot.
If you want to hand hold them I can't help because I can't do it so I have no advice.
Yes. The object is to only have the lens exposed when the bursts are going. If there actually is a one minute series of bursts and you leave the lens exposed the entire time you may have to stop the lens down to f/16 to keep from overexposing the pic.
