Several posts ago I showed the results of mounting my camera within my car and shooting at night, capturing lists from cars and other objects. I have also done the same with fireworks.
We have all taken the same fireworks pictures and gotten the same results. However, I decided to shoot them a little differently. I hand hold the camera and open the shutter, shooting with a small aperture. Sometimes I slowly move the camera back and forth, other times I shake it vigorously, the get the trails of the fireworks after they explode. The results range from throwaways to interesting, and as always, a lot of chance is involved.
