Photographer Jim Calarese explains the technique behind his striking fireworks photos.
Several people have asked me how I shoot fireworks. There are a couple of techniques but the most used method requires three things: a sturdy tripod, a cable release and a camera that has either a manual setting or a fireworks setting.
