NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 2, 2012) - July 4th is one of the most important dates in our nation's history. For many, this holiday is celebrated with barbeques, picnics, parties, and fireworks. To help celebrate, the New York Institute of Photography has once again released some expert tips for capturing those amazing photo opportunities that fireworks present. Below is an excerpt from NYIP's recent article:
"A skyrocket takes time from the moment it's launched until the last burst of its color fades. As the rocket sails skyward, the crowd has time to exclaim 'Ooh!' Then as it explodes in a burst of trails of color, the crowd has time to exclaim, 'Ahh!' From launch to fadeout takes a few seconds perhaps ending with a stirring 'bang.' Your exposure, therefore, should be long enough to capture part, or all, of this time-consuming progression."
