Hi everyone,

I was thinking of photographing the national day fireworks display. I'm planning to shoot the fireworks with a foreground of the city scenes. Does anyone have experience with photographing fireworks or any advice for the exposure calculation??

Thanks in advance!!

For a start u can try F8 focus on infinity and bulb settings, usually i open the shutter for probably about 5s so that u can get multiple fireworks.

But u should try it at F16 and so on as u wish to expose for the cityscape too but i think that should not be a problem if generally the light level is low.
