Tramore Amusements Monster Firework Display 2013

On Sunday 25th August there was a Monster Fireworks display in Tramore, Co. Waterford. I decided to try and get a few shots having not brought the camera to the Spraoi fireworks display. In this post I outline the technique used I used in taking photos of fireworks and also some photos of the Tramore Amusements Monster Firework Display 2013.

Firework Photos – Technique

For those interested in how I took these fireworks photos, the settings I used were as follows:

  • Tripod was used – it’s foolish to try take firework photos without one
  • ISO 100
  • WB-Auto
  • Full Manual Mode (M)
  • Aperture set to between f/11 and f/16
  • Lens was 24-105mm Canon L Lens (auto-focus and IS turned off)
  • Lens hood was used to block very strong light coming from car-park lights near by
  • Lens focused to infinity – tested for sharpness before the fireworks went off
  • Shutter Speed 15-20 seconds (I played around with the lengths a bit).
  • Finally I used a remote control to trigger the camera so that no tripod shake was induced.
    You could also have enabled Mirror Lock-up but I didn’t on this occasion.
    Another technique uses black card or foam to block the lens in between shots which is also very effective.
