Photographing fireworks can be a bit tricky because we’re working in the dark.

Common understanding is that the aperture setting should be set more open to accommodate the darkness but actually the night sky is simply the background.

It is, in fact, the bursts of bright light we wish to capture so stopping down the aperture is a better solution for this situation.

Setting your camera to f/8, f/11 or possibly f/16 may give better results.

You may also wish to bracket your shots to evaluate which settings work best in these specific lighting conditions.
