Tipsy Tuesday (#174)

Want perfect photos of tomorrow's fireworks display?

Tip #174

Go flash-less.

Shooting with a flash will have no impact on your shots except to trick your camera into thinking it needs a short exposure time. Keep in mind that your camera’s flash will only reach a short distance and in the case of fireworks even if they were closer a flash wouldn’t really have anything to light except for some smoke which would distract from the real action (the flashing lights).

Ahh..our fireworks were Saturday night, and I gave up trying to photograph them a long time ago. I'll have to try that next year! :)

great tip! Although I'd probably end up just using my iphone b/c I'm lazy-- but you know, they didn't even do fireworks by our house like they normally do!? So disappointed! Hope you had a great 4th
