How to Capture a Time Lapse of the Fireworks!

The 4th of July is almost here, and for a decade we’ve brought you different posts on how to photograph fireworks.  This year, let’s take it up a notch and capture a time lapse of the fireworks!

I found this photo tutorial on how to capture time lapse of the fireworks.

What is Time Lapse?  It’s basically taking several photos and then stitching them together to see them as a video.  Time lapses are great for telling chronological stories like sunrise or sunset, moving out of your home, setting up a party, styled shoot or production.  I also love it when Brian does time lapse of the clouds moving across the sky.  Many of your cameras have a time lapse setting that makes this super easy to try.  But there are a few steps involved to get the BEST time lapse possible.

You have to know HOW CRAZY EXCITED we are to show you this post!  Brian set this all up last year, but we had to wait a WHOLE YEAR to show you our time lapse!  LOL!  The time has finally come!  This photo and the time lapse were all done from my parents’ backyard!  And thanks to Triple Scoop Music, we’ve even got some fun music to go with the Time Lapse video!

Ready for it?  Head over to my Babble column to see the post, 10 Simple Steps: How to Capture a Time Lapse of the Fireworks!  That’s right.  Brian and I smoothed this whole process out to ten simple steps that will make this year’s fireworks memories extra special!!!  Ooooohhh!!! I’m so excited for you to try!!

If time lapse isn’t your thing, and you just want a great photo of the fireworks.  See our most popular photo recipe for how to photograph fireworks, by following the link.  That post has been pinned 197 TIMES, so I’m thinking that is our readers’ favorite one!  🙂

Have a WONDERFUL 4th of July everyone!
