    I'm off out tonight to get some (hopefully) good photos of fireworks... (their explosions obviously...!!)

    any one have any tips?

    I've got an old (12 years ish) SLR with poloriser, N/density and UV filters...

    I was thinking of using the long exposure to get the full firework, tail and explosion... but wondering if the light will over expose the picture?

    any help is much appreciated!!

    There are a few threads here that have some tips for shooting fireworks. Try a search.

    You absolutely need a tripod or something to support the camera. A remote shutter release would be an asset as well.
