Aileen Everlast's 4th Of July Fireworks Gallery
July 7th, 2014
For those photography nerds out there, I wanted to do a bit of a write up on how I shot these fireworks! Alright first off, I have a Nikon D5100 which is a DSLR camera, I shot in manual mode, with F8 Aperture, and my shutter is switched into "bulb" mode, and I had minimum ISO at 100. I could have stood to have the aperture set to F7, because at F8, the shots were slightly underexposed, however since I shot in RAW, this was easily correctable in Photoshop. I had the focus set to infinity, however as soon as I started shooting, I took a quick look at a few of my shots, and found the fireworks out of focus, so I manually adjusted my focus until the fireworks were crisp and clear.
