Yesterday we did a special Holiday episode of The Grid all about how to take great fireworks shots. Erik (the real Rocket Man) Kuna and I cover everything from The Gear to the techniques to the post-processing in Photoshop and Lightroom and lots of helpful tips along the way.

We get right to it from the start (we have a lot to cover), and if you’re looking to make great fireworks shots tonight, we give the exact time-tested recipe of settings that can’t miss!

Here’s wishing and your family a happy, safe, and fun 4th of July. Hope you get some great shots! :)

Best,

-Scott

  1. I have used the dehaze slider in the opposite way — to add haze where there might be smoke from previous bursts to add atmosphere. I don’t do this all of the time, but sometimes I brush it in around the actual burst. It’s an option anyway.
