4th of July 2018 and Macy's Fireworks Display
As always, it's the best fireworks in the USA. This year it's being promoted to be even better than the last several years.
I just learned that this year they will have 75,000 canisters, wow.
Here is a link if you want to be kept updated as to where the barges will be and where the best viewing spots are.
If you like pictures of fireworks and can't come to New York City for the 4th, check out my link below for some of my pictures.
If you want to take pictures of fireworks but just never got a chance to pratice enough here are a few tip you can use.
#1- Don't get too close to the action, some of my best shots are taken from a mile away.
#2- pre focus. Take a place near where you think the action will be and focus on that spot. Then set your camera on MANUAL focus, and leave it there.
#3- Set your iso on 100 or 200
#4- Set your aperture on f8 or f5.6
#5- Set shutter speed for 2 seconds
#6- use a tripod and a cable release to snap the pictures
Don't be discuraged if you don't get great pictures the first time, the pictures I post are the result of learning after hundreds of bad shots, yes that's not a typo, HUNDREDS.
