Capturing fireworks on camera is a challenge that can be mastered easily with the right equipment and settings on your camera. Here is a short tutorial to help you capture the rockets' red glare this Fourth of July.
- Camera: Either point-and-shoot or an SLR.
- Tripod: To keep the camera steady and prevent motion blur.
- Flashlight: To see the camera settings in the dark.
- Wireless Trigger: Not necessary but it helps to prevent camera shake.
There are plenty of spots to check out fireworks around the area Wednesday night—just and pick one close by.
