A good way to practice is shooting traffic I think. The principles are the same.
Tripod, long-ish exposure, and for me I adjust iso to compensate for lengthening or shortening my exposure. I also like to try and get some photos as early as possible to add some landscape to it.


Adding the landscape is probably a good next step once you get the firework part down but it can really take a shot to the next level.


Zooming or changing focus during the exposure can also add some fun elements and make your shots stand out.

Hello again, Mee. I was looking again at the photo you included in your reply. You say it was taken with a Kx but how did you get the broken lines in the firework trajectories. It looks like a video shot with rapidly repeating frames giving the broken lines. On a time exposure won't you get a continuous arc for the firework path?
I think this was one of those crackling fireworks if you understand what i mean, but with long exposure you will see each time a single container lights up

Very interesting shots. I like the streaks from the traffic which add to the fireworks effect. Thanks.
