      Firework Photos

      How do people get such clear photos of fireworks with the trails really sharp? They almost look like they've been drawn. Mine are always just blurs with smoke patterns.

      Mine are blurred too, i used to have a camera with a sports setting on so if i took a photo of something moving it didnt blur. My "new" camera doesnt have that on so they dont come out so good.

      What kind of camera are you using? Are you using a tripod? Are you using a remote release?

      Canon 500D (T1i in USA I think). Yes and yes. Most of mine are taken from across the lake rather than close up.

      Some of mine came out ok, apart from the smoke. Googled for ages to try find out how to remove smoke, but didn't find anything that worked completely

      Long exposure time is key too:

      Paula this is from the desert party we went to. I used my tripod and trigger release. ISO is set at 100 f-stop at f9.

      As for smoke, there is no way to remove it sort of using the clone stamp and picking up black from somewhere else in the picture. Sometimes if you up your contrast setting when you're editing some of it will 'go away'. As you can see in my picture though, I have smoke - nothing I could do about it.

      Bulb is under your Manual Settings - on a Canon, for those of you trying to find it.

      Oops, would have been helpful to include that right? Yes, what TT said
