One of my favorite nights of the year to shoot is the 4th of July. I like watching fireworks. But I love seeing them captured by a camera. The lines of the fireworks streaming across the night sky create really interesting images.
With so many Roadtrekers out there around the U.S. this time of year, chances are are you’ll be watching a big fireworks display. They aren’t too difficult to photograph, especially with a few tips.
Three of the four images here are from a 10 megapixel Nikon D80 the second time I tried to shoot fireworks back in 2007. The first time was the day before from a boat in Lake Michigan. That didn’t work well at all!
Perhaps the most important consideration when shooting fireworks is your location relative to the fireworks. You need a great spot which means you need to get there early. What better way to hang out than with your RV nearby!
