I admit it, I get a little carried away with fireworks photos. Each one is as unique as fresh fallen snowflakes with no two alike. I have developed a technique that works well for me, combining multiple fireworks bursts in the camera as they happen. Our friends Paul and Tammy have dubbed it the "hat trick", where with the camera on a tripod, I keep the shutter open during a burst until it has blossomed to a point that I like, then cover the lens with my hat until the next burst, then move my hat to expose the next burst and repeat until I think I have enough exposures on each image. The photo on the left is three fireworks bursts in succession, but covering the lens after each until the next one. I thought the trees in the foreground gave a nice perspective.
