The firework event is often well attended and is funded independently of the township. We’ve been doing it since the kids were in kindergarten (and before I knew how to use a DSLR).
I always attempt photos. This year I tried capturing the display with my iPhone 6. I mounted the iPhone 6 with a clamp on the side of my tripod. I have experimented with long exposure waterfall photography using the ProCam app so I thought shooting fireworks photos with the app would be easy. For long exposures of waterfalls, the app does a good job of smoothing out running water.
However, the app didn’t do as well with fireworks photos. I don’t think I used the app correctly. The results were not been very good. The images were either way out of focus or the highlights were blown out. I tried various modes but none produced a useable image. Perhaps I just need to experiment some more. I’ll have a few more opportunities. New Hope in Pennsylvania has fireworks displays every Friday during the summer.
The fireworks were used to accompany many festivities. It is thus a part of the culture of China and had its origin there; eventually, it spread to other cultures and societies. ~ Wikipedia
