how soon after the "explosion" do you close the shutter?

latazyo,i usually set my exposure for 2-3 seconds at f8,but last night i decided to go with 4-6 seconds at f10.I release the shutter when i hear the first launch(i want the streamers that go from the ground up to the explosion.I also wanted as many explosions as possible in each shot.You will find that each firework will have a different light intensity so it`s pretty hard to not get some blown highlights.But if you shot Raw you can go into NX later and under expose the shot and apply highlight protection as necessary.

Oh,and if you have the shutter close after the explosion has died right out of sight you get the nice long streams of light.

thanks a lot Brian,

I am prepping for friday night

I plan on using the 50/1.8

I think it will be wide enough

Not a problem glad you enjoyed them,i also found shooting in portrait orientation was best too, as some of the fireworks really get up there in height..and depending on how close you can get 50mm might be good,but i`d take a 18-70 or similar with me,zoom is nice for this work..
