My friend took me to Rose Bowl Stadium to see firework on the 4th of July. I thought it would be a great opportunity to take some photos. Preparing for the event, I read some how-to articles. And I found out (1) I should use tripod — I didn’t bring one to LA (2) I should use a remote release – I didn’t have one (3) I should scope out the location for a better photo – the seat was pre-assigned (4) It would be nice to include some foreground or background – but there wasn’t much to include from where I was.
So, I took some photos of the firework without any foreground or background. I wonder how I know it is a good firework photo. What am I supposed to look for? Composition? Color? Sharpness?
