Fireworks photography is the process of taking photographs of fireworks at night. It is a type of night photography, specifically using available light of the fireworks instead of artificial light. Without using the flash on the camera, the photographer often exposes the image for a period of time, known as long exposure.[1][2] Brighter fireworks sometimes support shorter exposure times.


The following samples are ordered from longer to shorter exposure time.
