Using your digital camera manually
But what if you want to go further? If you have a digital camera that offers full manual control and you’re keen to develop your digital photo skills this New Year’s Eve, follow these tips to get the best results when shooting fireworks.

Even though it’s night time and you might be tempted to set a high ISO, keep the ISO low to avoid noise in the dark areas – 100 should be right.

  • Turn the flash off
  • To capture the full impact of the bursting fireworks, set the shutter speed
  • between 1 and 4 seconds
  • Use an aperture of f/8 or f/16
  • Make sure you use a tripod!
