Whatever you do, don't set your coffee cup adjacent to your turps cup. :CS:

Some sage advice. They are cancelling most fireworks displays this year because of Covid-19. Of course the illegal stuff has not stopped.... ugh

I agree. Great advice for a challenging shoot.

Best take-away from the article....

I know what you're thinking: Why not just use digital zoom? Because the results are terrible. Digital zoom just crops and enlarges the scene from a full-size shot, making your photo look fuzzy and dull. Zooming in too far makes your decent-looking 12-megapixel still look like a grainy and embarrassing 3-megapixel disaster.
