How to make fireworks look right in your photos

These are my favorite shots I took of the New Year’s Eve fireworks.



Have you ever wondered how to get this kind of look?


Do these 5 things to make your firework photos look the way you want them to.


1. Find a clear location.


2. Set a slow shutter speed to create the long trails of light.


3. Use a tripod instead of going handheld to reduce blurring.


4. Brighten shadows and tone down highlights when editing.


5. Add a slight color grade to emphasize contrasting colors.


Happy 2024!
