Wish you all a very happy Diwali. Today we bring to you some articles that show you how best to photograph fireworks and fire crackers. Just remember, the most important thing is to be safe and not to endanger yourself and others around you. Moving around with a camera and tripod might make you look funny to others but the photographs that you shoot today will bring you joy the year round – much longer after the noise from the fireworks has died down.

You will need lots of patience for this and a camera which preferably has a “manual” or “M” setting.
You will need a tripod and a cable release for your camera. These can be fairly inexpensive pieces if you don’t already have one or both. The stability of a tripod while standing off to the side as throngs of spectators move about is of paramount importance to the final image quality. The cable release is as equally important for image quality as it is for timing. Timing the launch, the fireworks ascent, the break in the sky, and finally the downward-curving trails under gravity will become crucial through the evolution of the fireworks show. The cable release also lets you watch the show while the camera and your thumb do the work!
