Olympus is sharing some great tips for photographing fireworks just in time for the 4th of July. My favorite tip is below. Click here to see the whole story by Olympus.
Create a trail of lights with a sparkler
Experiment with your camera’s Night Scene+Portrait mode to capture amazing photos of light trails. This Scene Mode will fire a flash to illuminate your subject – but it will also keep the shutter open long enough to capture a light trail.
*If your camera does not have Fireworks Scene Mode or Night Scene+Portrait, your best alternative is to try Night Mode while using a tripod.
