Thread: How would fireworks turn out if taken in IR?

  1. #1

    Default How would fireworks turn out if taken in IR?

    Would it just be a white streak, or would certain colours become brighter than others cos different metals burn at different temperatures?

    Thinking of trying out during the fireworks on the 12th.

    If you try it on real IR film, then I'm afraid it will all be B&W.

    That's an interesting idea. But do note that you'll be using very slow shutter speeds if you're shooting IR, so you'll need to time your exposures well.

    But then, isn't a long exposure usually used in fireworks anyway?

    Actually,I was thinking if the white streak would be exposed more (whiter) by certain colours that we can see.

    Cos different metals burn at different temperatures, and thus, give out different intensities of IR rays?

    Btw, what kind of IR film would be suitable for this?
