A few months ago, I contributed a number of fireworks photography tips for Tamron’s eViewfinder newsletter and Tamron’s online Learning Center. You can find the article here. With July 4th approaching, many people in the United States will certainly be watching fireworks displays.
Regardless of where you live, I hope that these tips inspire you to grab your tripod and get creative with the many options you have when photographing fireworks. Please be careful if you are planning to use fireworks; I recommend leaving it up to the prosâ€“you’ll save money, and more importantly, you’ll have a far less chance of getting injured. I also interviewed two photographers in May for the newsletter. Those can be found by selecting Article 1 and Article 3 at the top of the page.
Enjoy the holiday!
