Natural Light: Sparkler Exit
A natural light sparkler exit? Can it be done? Of course. There are requirements, however.
You will need a fast prime with a wide aperture (f/1.4) to let in more light as sparklers themselves don’t produce much light. A camera with great low-light focusing abilities and facial tracking will also benefit you when trying to capture an image like this as nailing the focus is one of the hardest aspects.
We also recommend directing the couple to walk more slowly than usual.
