Hello everyone, I am Ricky , newbie with Sony A550. Hope to gain advice, tips, techniques ,,,etc from "old birds' ...:D:D

For a start, i hv been taking Night Fireworks for NDP using manual - "Bulb" mode . Aperture set at f16-f22, speed 2s to 10s. For shots above 5s , shots of Fireworks were grossly "overexposed" .

Can anyone advise the correction for this. ????

Thanks

Welcome to CS.

What was overexposed? the explosions themselves? Perhaps post a photo so we can see what you're trying to describe.

Hi Ricky,

Insert your pinky finger into the USB connector of your computer. Now l insert my finger into mine. Once we have connection, please imagine that picture and I'll download it into my mind ... hehehehe.

Hope your pinky's USB version is 10.0 if not won't work.

Anyway, without picture hard to give you a definite answer but maybe having 3 seconds is enough, without having to go bulb mode. Did you use a black card to time it so that you only capture the fireworks when it explodes and cover it when it is done, and then repeat it for every different fireworks you want to capture? Anyway, rule of physics indicate that the fireworks strand should not be straight but wavy.

Cheers and welcome ... me 'new' bird too!
