Sparkler Photography Tutorial

In this tutorial, we’re going to be photographing sparklers! I’m going to show you how to do light painting photography using sparklers. It’s actually a really simple thing to do, you just need to get your camera settings correct and then practice.

This is a really fun thing to do at a fireworks night or just in your garden with left over sparklers. I also provided you with a free guide to Sparkler Photography below.

I’d love to see your attempts at this. If you want to show us, tag #theschoolofphotography on Facebook or Instagram so we can see it.

You can get the guide at the bottom of this page.
