Wowww what a difference that made. I am a huge fan of post-editing photos. As this shows, you may think you have a throwaway picture but then it can end up amazing with a little tweaking. Great shot!

It's been a while since there has been any discussion re. tips and tricks, but I have a question...

What setting or techniques are best for photographing fireworks? Its an area that I am weak at and would like to be able to shoot better fireworks, especially at Disney World.

My understanding is that a tripod of some sort is pretty much required as the shutter is typically open a bit longer than normal. Also, shooting above about f8 aperture? Shooting in fully manual mode most likely?

Would greatly appreciate any tips or advice on this.

Thanks! Smile

It depends on if you want to do the long color streams or just shoot as the eye sees it. I recommend reading the photography section on the Disney Tourist Blog. Tom Bricker is a master of fireworks shots.

I reviewed an app a while back that was designed to improve fireworks photography. If I remember Tom Bricker was part of the team that put it together.
