Wuuuh, how do you do that? I find it hard to shoot city lights and for example fireworks because I have to do setting adjustments with ISO and such and I can't get it right. I cant get the colours pop into a dark background. As if I wanted to take pictures of stars or the moon. This pic is really pretty, I cant believe how straight the lines are xD
They are both really pretty! I'm a ginormous noob too.. thats why I only try a lot of settings and see how it goes and then I forgot which buttons I fumbled with xD.. Aah so forgetful and dont really know the buttons that good.. Anyway I'd love to try and take pics like that.. So.. set shutter speed.. And ISO is quite low, so.. Aperture, I dont know what is but Ill find the button!
aperture... you have Av mode? that is aperture priority... like F3.5 or 5.6 or whatever.. if you want to focus on a particular object (e.g. a cup) and make the background blurry, a lower number (i.e. 3.5 or lower) is best
That is amazinggggggggg! I've never seen fireworks in person; only on TV and photos heh. And you've captured it spot on with the little sparklies and colours without noticeable fuzz! This is not something you can change of course as it was on the spur shot you've taken, but what could improve is that it's quite a plain shot of two firework explosions in the middle and composition wise, it's dead set in the middle without anything else. Amazing regardless; I wished I could afford those cameras...
Nice and clear. I donīt know do you have tripod, but you could get very cool firework photos when you set your camera on tripod and put shutter speed slow. Press the shutter before the firework is flying to sky. You could also use bulb mode which allows you to use long exposure times under direct control. I recommend to use remote control, so you donīt nudge the camera while pressing the shutter. Just a tip. And also, sorry about my messy English.
