    more or less based on what i want to capture then when i will release the shutter
    normally if i want to capture more bursts, i use a higher Fstop.
    but too much will be messy too and will get smoke trails.
    it will also depend on what type of fireworks to choose the Fstop.

    When the second firework burst fires up, you remove the black card. No meddling with camera settings. If you think 2 firework shots is enough. stop the shutter open and remove the black card. Only one photo is taken with two burst.

    Some people capture 3 firework shots with black card technique but some say the 3 firework shots may be too messy if all shots capture in one photo.

    Depends on individual preference.

    for me I may try 2 firework burst for one shot.

    Definitely going tonight with a group of friends.

    No black card also can capture nice firework.

    I used these settings on my kit lens 18~55mm canon 500D during NDP firework.

    F11 or F13, iso 100 or 200, open shutter a few seconds (2~5 seconds) for single shot

    but must have tripod, disable your VR or IS, set to manual focus.

    save battery, cause already on tripod mah.


    ok actually its to prevent the VR mechanism from trying to compensate a shake when there isn't any real shake. so leaving the VR on may get you shaky images. something like that lah. im sleepy.
