Toms River Fireworks Taken With Drone

Posted

Drone

I shot the fireworks on the Toms River last night with my newest Phantom 3 Professional UAV "Drone". It was a good show and the river was packed with boats watching the spectacle. Below is a six minute video of the fireworks with Ray Charles singing "America The Beautiful" and 7 year old Rhema singing the "National Anthem". I hope you enjoy it.





Here is the video





and some photos.

Taking Photos Of Fireworks Tips

Posted

fireworks

Get there early and scout out a location that has a good foreground, background and view of the area the fireworks will be.

Use a Tripod, if you don't have one brace your camera on a car roof, tree trunk or any stable surface and set camera to manual. Use an aperture (size of opening in the lens) of between f/5.6 and f/11 (midrange). Try shutter speeds from 1/2 second to a couple of seconds (on most cameras to get the longer shutter speeds set camera to bulb and hold shutter down to expose and release to stop exposure). The longer speeds capture the movement of the fireworks (and any movement of the camera so keep it steady). If you have a cable release for the shutter use it to minimize shake when you press the shutter if not try to minimize shake as best you can.

Try different apertures (f-stops) and shutter speeds.

If you are using a camera in your smart phone again steady yourself by leaning on a tree, car or any fixed structure. As far as adjustments, you may not have many but you should turn off the flash, there probably is no speed or aperture adjustments. You could try changing the ISO from 100 and range to 800 (if available).

Have fun.
