photographing fireworks (with a twist)
presentation: 90 minutes
Fireworks displays are the kind of spectacular event that almost demand to be photographed.
For the last few years I’ve been running around Melbourne trying to photograph every fireworks display I can find. My technique started out as conventional but then took a turn and now produces an array of bizarre images.
So how do I do it?
In this session I will take you through the basic camera technique for photographing fireworks and then I’ll explain my “weirdo” technique and the various creative possibilities it offers.
- finding fireworks to shoot
- required camera equipment
- camera settings
- conventional technique
- “weirdo” technique
