Photographing Fireworks Shopping List.  I would imagine that if you are reading this blog, you already have a camera and standard kit lens, really enjoy photographing the every day home life or the occasional day trip and holiday. But what about those one-off events that only come round once a year and stump you with what to do?

Photographing Fireworks

That is why we have created our “How to Photograph Fireworks” course that you will find on our website. This blog is intended to support the course as a handy shopping guide in order to purchase the right tripod and accessories that you may perhaps need to move into the long exposures realm of photography.

As you can see there are so many options out there, but I hope this buying guide makes things a little easier for you to make your decision!

One of our top photography tips when you are photographing fireworks is to take a pair of black gloves. You can then hold your hand in front of the lens between explosions of the fireworks (careful not to touch the lens itself) and then this helps cut out the light and remove each time a fireworks goes off! 

Once you have your new camera kit, have a look on our website for beginner photography courses at to get you up and running in no time.
