    Default Fireworks!

    Hi, Fireworks month is coming! So are there any plans to organise a group of oly people to go shoot fireworks?
    BTW, will ZD11-22mm be a good lens to shoot fireworks?

    Cheers!

    No need,i seen people stand very far but use 12mm,in the end only capture very small bursts.

    Quote on best lens actually depends on your composition... 11-22 OR your kit lens is good enough if you are planning to shoot the fireworks from too close....... wide from a close distance will avoid unwanted lights getting reflected from lamp-post, compact flash, etc....

    To comment on using wide from a very longer distance is not a bad idea as like I said it depends on your composition...And again its not wrong to have a small view of fireworks... with the surrounding area in picture you can actually judge the size of it....




    Think & Plan properly before you shoot fireworks....go down, look at the location, do your home work on the settings that you plan, take some sample pictures a day before.... Last and most important, be there few hours early...
