Although they’re not for everyone, a lot of people enjoy bonfire night on November 5th, and we’ve all pulled out our camera to take a picture and missed the moment, or it’s come out all grainy, fuzzy and not really captured the event.
So, to help you out, here’s some simple tips for settings on your DSLR so you know how to photograph fireworks
1. Set your ISO as low as possible, 100 or 200 is ideal
2. Set you aperture to F/11
3. Set the shutter speed to about 1/2 a second
It’s really that simple, nothing extra, then snap away. If you feel your photos are a bit dim, alter your shutter speed while leaving everything else, although, of course the slower the shutter speed the more steady you need to be, so maybe using a tripod wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Have fun, and post your firework photos on our page www.facebook.com/perceptionstudiosuk on bonfire night, we look forward to seeing your shots.

So how can you be sure you’re using the right influencers for your brand?
So, today June 14th, the biggest football tournament in the world kicks off in Russia. We’ll all spend the next few weeks thinking this could be the year England finally go further than the last 16 and then get super cheesed off when they don’t.
When I speak to brands and businesses about a video, viral is usually one of the main things people want from a piece of content. In fact, the term seems to have exploded in the last 12 months or so.
The honest answer to anyone is, there is no magic formula for making a piece of content go viral. You could make the most polished piece of content and it is seen by nobody, and then film yourself on your phone talking while you walk and it goes crazy on views.
So, GDPR, it’s coming whether we like it or not, and just a few hours ago I was surfing my social media and stumbled across a very interesting LinkedIn post. It spoke all about GDPR and what they saw as a huge issue for many small and large businesses who relied on email.
The words I hear so often from small businesses around the UK. Social media is a massive world, and we’re spoilt for choice with the number of outlets we can distribute too.
