Cool Firework Effects

Learn a little more about your camera to capture some really cool firework effects!

Cool Firework Effects

1. Blurred Fireworks {TorBang Photography}: Use manual focus to achieve a completely blurred image that’s FULL of color!

2. Black and White {Megan Kelly}Even though fireworks are known for being full of color, there’s something so special and beautiful about a black and white!

3. Multiple Blurred Fireworks – Achieve Bokeh {Megan Kelly}Bokeh is the blurred/distorted part of an image which is not in focus. Time it just right so that your image is FULL of colorful bokeh from lots of fireworks at once!

4. Shaped Blurs {Maks Snaps}Learn how to use a homemade lens filter to create beautiful shapes with the light!

5. Light Trails {John Davenport PhoGrow}: Once again, set a super slow shutter speed {you might want a tripod for one like this} and great awesome light trails!

6. Over the Neighborhood {Keele Photography}This is a great way to capture some memories of your sweet home!

Light up the Sky

Let’s talk about exposing your picture for the foreground to make the subject pop!

7. On the Ground {Rowell Photo}: Set off your fireworks and stand right in front for a bright picture! Don’t stand too close!

8. Smooch in Front {LKC Studios}: To achieve this look, this time focus on your foreground {the couple} and make sure your flash will fire!

9. Add a Dip {Rowell Photo}This is a fun and romantic pose!

10. Spotlight {AMA By Aisha}: Highlight the couple by adding a little spotlight!

11. Depth of Field {Rowell Photo}: Focus on the people in your picture and the fireworks will blur a little in the background.

12. Vantage Point: Get down low and capture your subject and the fireworks from below. {Stock Photo}

Firework Silhouettes

Something fun that fireworks allow you to do is expose your picture for the background to make a silhouette.

I am a busy wife and Mother to three beautiful children! I was raised in California but I now call Texas home, and I love being with my family more than anything in the world! I have LOTS of different interests and love learning new things. Photography and being a wife/mommy are what make me the happiest, but water skiing on a hot summer day isn't a bad second choice!
