Smashing Conf New York

We use ad-blockers as well, you know. We gotta keep those servers running though. Did you know that we publish useful books and run friendly conferences — crafted for pros like yourself? E.g. upcoming SmashingConf Barcelona, dedicated to smart front-end techniques and design patterns.

Stunning Fireworks Photos

It is a most beautiful experience — the sounds and colors of fireworks in the silence and darkness of night. Words alone cannot describe such an experience. The sky comes alive with so many vibrant hues, starbursts, and showers of light along with ribbons of smoke, making us happy and awestruck. Photographing fireworks, however, is not an easy task.

To celebrate the beauty of fireworks, we present a showcase of beautiful fireworks photography. Each image is linked to the original photographer’s page with their profile names — so you can view more of their work or even thank them for their contribution. And finally, remember to have a camera handy this coming New Year’s Eve!

Things to keep in mind for your Fireworks photos this year Link

To make some truly stunning fireworks shots, you need keep a couple of things in mind. First, a normal camera can’t handle such high levels of light. Although you’re shooting at night, using your flash won’t make any difference. Also, the light produced by fireworks is more than enough to capture a decent shot. For more dramatic results, you may choose longer exposure. And to ensure a high-quality result, always be ready for initial explosions when there’s less smoke in the atmosphere.

Other things to keep in mind are to use low ISO, set focal length to infinity, use a tripod and of course use manual mode. Some cameras have “Fireworks Mode” which saves you the trouble of having to adjust a lot of different settings. Just set the camera to “Fireworks Mode” and you’re ready for action!

And, of course, Happy New Year’s Eve!

    Not only are the piccy’s wonderful, but the skill of those who construct the fireworks too. Knowing what to put with what to create such a magnificent spectacle – got to admire that. Bear in mind also, they’re working with explosives, not exactly a job for a smoker!
