How do you guys determine the Aperture and Shutter speed settings when shooting fireworks? I know that those have to be set before hand.
I have read the primer on shooting fireworks but have some things which I do not understand.
When I set my camera to bulb mode, does it mean that so long as the shutter release is pressed, the shutter will remain open?
If thats the case, won't it end up over exposing the shot?
And how long should I hold it open for?
What kind of shots will I get with a long exposure? I am kinda hopping to "freeze" the fireworks.
I apologise if these have been asked many times in the past.
BTW I am using a Nikon CP5700, still very new to it and still trying to fiddle with the thing.
Are there any resources that can teach a newbie?
