Long exposure for fireworks
Hey all! Today I wanted to briefly talk about the image above because it's a more technical image.
Some people will know this technique, it's not a huge secret! But for people who don't work with cameras then I thought it'd be fun to explain how this works.
Charity, Bobby and I got our stash of fireworks, sparklers and smoke bombs and proceeded to take photos of everything possible in the dark, because it's just another way to enjoy the lights. I quickly suggested that we spell out a word with the sparklers since they are easy to move while lit.
LUCKILY I had driven my car, so my tripod was in the trunk where I always have it.
So I set up my tripod, and we lit the sparklers
(freaking out every time one finally went off).
You also can do ghost people this way
Special bonus: The bright underline in the below image is actually from a car's headlights that passed behind Bobby while he was spelling out the word. They thought it was going to ruin the shot, but I shouted keep going and it turned out to be a great addition!
