I bought a sparkler for the Fourth of July, it's coming up, remember? What I want to do is capture the whole thing sparkling. I know the sparkler won't all be aglow at once, so what I have plan is: 1) set camera on tripod (night time) 2) poke sparkler in the ground 3) light 4) take several pictures 5) PS them together
I figure one exposure would just burn the picture out. Any guess what exposure to use?
- Quack! Quack!

That's a tuffy! I would get some single sparklers and experiment. Light the USA sparkler in different places at the same time so the whole thing would be burning at once. (probably need some extra hands on this :>)) When it is all "sparkling" take several exposures bracketing. Good luck!

sorry can't help you out, but when you get the shot would love to see it
i did something like this once. i never got a clear pic, but, the tracer trails were awesome. of course i don't know what or how i did it, so...as usual, i'm of no help!
i've never used it, but, my camera has a fireworks setting?

Come to think of it, mine, also, has a fireworks setting. I think I'll see what it does.
