Being Creative with Light Trails
While it is strongly recommended to shoot fireworks using a tripod, there are some instances when it may not make too much difference. Such as on the case of a tripod on a boat! The classic curves normally found in fireworks are almost always shot from a static camera on tripod, but when the camera or photographer is moving, some interesting results can occur. Jagged streaks of light and unpredictable trails of light can also create some interesting images. Especially if you used a boat to get closer to the fireworks. With a little practice, you can begin to paint with light inside the camera!
