Photographing people and fireworks
1) Can someone teach me how to photograph people with fireworks in the background using DSLR? (I tried a few times... but the exposure not quite right )
2) Should I use a flash to light up their face ? but then can't get the fireworks cos' it will be overexposed.
3) How to compose such a picture ? (any photos to share ?)
4) Can't I shoot without a tripod? ( I know tripod is a must, but I'm travelling.... so very clumsy to bring along)
Pls help ! I'm very confused now....

Re: Photographing people and fireworks
Please don't cross-post. You already asked this in the sony category.
and yes, flash in a rear-sync config is needed. So you get a long exposure to capture the fireworks, and a flash to illuminate the people.
