Over the years, smartphones become cameras of topping up quite remarkable, advanced enough to provide, to the help of tiny sensors, photos of a high fly. If the camera’s hybrid or reflex still remain inevitable to capture great shots without compromise in terms of rendering, smartphones have the undeniable advantage of being continuously in the background of our pockets.
They are also solutions with respect for economic take beautiful photos without investing several hundred or even thousands, of euros in a dedicated device. But in spite of these qualities, and progress made over the past two years by Samsung, Apple or yet Huawei, our faithful smartphones are not always of the beasts of the race when it comes to taking snapshots of the night. And for cause, the gap between the darkness of the night and the brightness of these pyrotechnic volutes can pose a problem to their sensors.
The importance of the accessories
Take pictures of fireworks with a simple smartphone is however possible… on the condition to be a little more prepared (and equipped) that the tourist Assistant unexpectedly to the event. The ideal is, therefore, to go through the registration checkbox to identify the proper location to take its Photos: it must be a little away from the crowd which will not fail to massage.
Do not be too polluted by the public lighting (which will jeopardize your photos) or invaded by vegetation, and should ideally allow you to ask a tripod. Because yes, protect themselves a minimum of equipment will be a (big) More for taking the perfect picture. Tripod hose or fold-out, trigger, photo and additional lenses (especially for older smartphones that only include a single photosensor) will indeed become the advantages of size. And the good news is that it is clearly not necessary to ruin.
On Amazon, the tripods first prices begin as soon 15 to 20 euros, triggers can be found at least 10 euros, while the lentils for Smartphone is often negotiating between 15 and 30 euros depending on the models.

In a quiet environment, the Personal assistants can also be a solution, like the Apple Watch for holders of the iPhone.
Do not forget to juggle between the different modes of a camera!
Other Council: do not hesitate to switch from one mode to the other once the Photo application launched. The latest flagships (iPhone XS, XR, Samsung Galaxy S10 and note 9, Huawei P30 Pro, OnePlus 7 Pro) teem often “camera modes” that is rarely used. Fireworks is a golden opportunity. Use the mode Time-Lapse may, for example, allow it to record a fun video to Instagram.
More interesting perhaps, the recent Google Pixel 3 and Huawei P30 Pro have a dedicated mode to capture photos of the night. It will be ideal in the context of fireworks, but attention… these modes require a minimum of light to function properly. The panorama mode present on almost all of the smartphones also allows you to take interesting photos to the horizontal, certainly, but also to the vertical.
Practice capturing a fireworks display in its entirety, the Lawn until the starry sky. Finally, do not forget that your smartphone can take pictures in a burst with now the trip command pressed. In the same vein, go from one objective to another for switcher between a classic view and great angel, or opt for the optical zoom (or hybrid) of his smartphone, is a reflex to take; especially on the latest models to the mode.
