Shoot and Edit Fireworks Like a Boss!

Fireworks are exciting and happen on a truly grand scale, often hundreds of feet above our heads. Launching skyward at night with great speed, photos of fireworks are super fun to capture, but also one of the most difficult subjects to photograph well.

This year, Macphun and the educational community of  Photofocus have teamed up to create this free video on shooting epic fireworks photos. Watch below as Rich Harrington, co-founder of Photofocus, walks you through practical gear choices, setting up on location, critical camera settings and of course shooting techniques. You’ll learn how to capture fireworks photos, and have fun doing it!

How to Photograph Fireworks, Part #1

Of course, the best fireworks photos rarely come from simply pressing the shutter button. They require a bit of developing in the “digital darkroom” too! And that’s where such Macphun software as  Intensify and Noiseless can come in handy.
