Capturing fireworks on camera is a challenge that can be mastered easily with the right equipment and settings on your camera. Here is a short tutorial to help you capture the rockets' red glare this Fourth of July.
- Camera: Either point-and-shoot or an SLR.
- Tripod: To keep the camera steady and prevent motion blur.
- Flashlight: To see the camera settings in the dark.
- Wireless Trigger: Not necessary but it helps to prevent camera shake.
Lexington's fireworks will be Thursday, July 5 at the annual Lions Club's Carnival, and there are several other fireworks displays around Boston over the next few days. Have a fireworks photo to share? Upload it to Patch!
