Capturing fireworks on film

Some point-and-shoot cameras have a “fireworks” preset mode that optimizes shots of bright flashes in the dark. Shooting fireworks with a dSLR can yield higher-quality results, but might take some practice. This colorful display was taken in Italy with a dSLR at Lake Albano, Rome. The image was shot with a relatively high ISO setting of 6400 at 1/30 second and an aperture of f/4. The slower shutter speed allowed the photographer to capture trails of individual spokes of the dazzling explosion.
