My first time photographing fireworks! They are legal where I live now so most were taken right where I live as the people across the street were lighting them. Since they where mainly above my head, they didn't do the cool curves toward the ground common with most firework photos.
Almost all I used a tripod, at least one I was on our van to hold the camera as steady as I could. It was also cool that there was a used firework with a parachute that landed on our driveway.
