I was lucky enough to be panning when the firework went off and capture this beautiful red explosion. Even managed to get the puff of smoke on the ground. Lucky shot, in all honesty.
Photographing fireworks is a challenge. Possibly better equipment might help, but night photography is a little bit specialist anyway, in my experience. It’s all to do with the light and at night there isn’t much, so that means longer exposure times and holding the camera more still. Next time I’m near fireworks I will try a video, as I think this might work better.
