In honor of Independence Day, I am going to throw out a few tips on how to capture fireworks.
Using your Smartphone:
- First and most importantly, Turn Off Your Flash!
- Secondly, you are going to want to get close to the action.
Phone cameras aren’t that great to begin with, but once you start using the zoom whatever quality you might have had disappears quickly. Another reason to get close to the action is to keep the camera’s small sensor focused on capturing the firework, not the whole night sky that would lead to dull colors and noise in your photo.
