I almost forgot to post this today!
I learned how to photograph fireworks over thirty years ago. The trick is not in the selection of shutter speed, but in the selection of which f-stop to use. Using a slow shutter speed (one second or more) and varying the f-stop gives you more or less of the flash burst. Photography is about light, after all.
The shot above is of a firecracker just before it bursts!
Happy 4th everybody!
