I would like to try my first attempt to capture fireworks, and this year end is my chance. Just would like to ask you all where I can take these pictures of fireworks, which spot is the best . What time should I go there to prepare for the shots? Are the fireworks start shooting at 12am sharp? Read through the forum and generally my settings would be f8 or f11, about 3-10 seconds of shutter time according to personal preference, hmm not really sure about ISO (800?). I hope I will not be taking trial and error shots throughout the whole fireworks session
Got my kit lens and a cheapo tripod ready to try my first attempt. Would like to hear from everyone thanks!
