If you know the basic things about photography for the Pyrotechnics display in the night sky, then now is the time to move one level up. Here are some useful tips and hints that can help you get perfect photographs of stunning fireworks.

First you need to ask yourself that whether your small flash is brighter than the fireworks. You know the answer is no. So, it is immaterial whether you use the flash or not. In both the cases, the subject is going to be bright. The illuminations will definitely overpower your flash. Thus, whether your camera flashes or not, it does not make a difference to the quality of the shot taken.

You must be wondering which photography technique can help you capture the shot exactly in the same way as it looks to the naked eye. A lot depends on the type of point and shoot model are you carrying. If you have the simplest model then maybe you will not be able to capture those great shots. But if you vary and keep the shutter speed low, you might get nice pictures. The trick is to keep the camera steady else in low speed, blurs might appear in the photos.

Next, think is what kind of lens work best for this type of photography? Well a telephoto lens is too narrow and a wide angle lens will not zoom in closely enough on the display. Though it is a kind of a personal choice and will ultimately affect the result of specific photographs, but a 50mm lens would normally prove to be the best choice for perfect fireworks shots.

Another question crossing your mind must be about the digital noise in the shots. These unwanted dots and specks of light colours in the photographs can spoil the fun and bother you while taking photos at night. The best way to eliminate these kinds of unwanted fuzz and blurriness is to maintain a low ISO while taking the pictures.

And ultimately, which is the best way you can turn out the professional quality in photos every time you click the camera. If you use an f-stop of f14, an ISO OF 100 and an exposure of 1.6 seconds along with the tripod,  you are sure to get the perfect shot every time. It is indeed a magic formula for the wonderful photos of the colourful night sky.
