Finn Beales is a photographer with an amazing amount of talent. The Award-winning lensman is based in the Black Mountains of Wales. He travels to places in search of that perfect image. Iceland, Canada, and Denmark are just some of the destinations he sets foot on to capture breathtaking landscape images.
Tobias Richter is no doubt a gifted landscape photographer based on his strikingly majestic images. The German lensman however, often shocks many when they find out that he is a relative neophyte to the craft. Although looking at the images will lead one to think that he is a seasoned photographer, Richter has only been taking photographs for three years.
When you are going to photograph fireworks, be prepared. Make sure you have enough memory cards and extra batteries. You will need to take a tripod, a wide-angle or a telephoto zoom lens, and remember to arrive early. Place the camera on a tripod, and turn the mode dial to M (manual) mode; we want f/8 – f/16 for a greater DOF (depth of field) and a long exposure anywhere between 1-10 seconds. Use your camera’s self-timer or a cable release to take the photo with absolutely no blurring. For dramatic effect, try to capture multiple fireworks trails across the sky.
