1. Get there early. Walk around the area and try to choose a good spot with the right vantage point. Spots with lots of people, water reflections, monuments and tall buildings can make a great photo.

2. Secure and stable surface. Shooting fireworks means that you will be shooting at light with a dark background. You will need a steady surface in order to capture the exact movement of the light. Use a tripod or set your camera on a surface that will not shake or move with the explosion of the fireworks.

3. Smaller ISO and larger exposure time. Try experimenting with the different settings. We recommend that you use exposure times in the range between 1/2 second to 5 seconds. Also, a small ISO 100/200 will result in photos with better sharpness.
Take a lot of photos, have fun trying out different things and experimenting with the different camera settings. But most important be original and play with your creativity.
