Launching fireworks wasn't straightforward this year. In some countries, it was even illegal. Regardless, fireworks lit up the skies all over the world at the start of 2022, and millions of photos were taken!
Whether you stuck to the rules or not, in this contest you can submit your best fireworks photos. If you didn't make any photos this year, or your magnum opus originated in a different year, you can submit those as well!
Fireworks photography is all about experimenting and tweaking settings such as exposure, ISO and aperture. It's difficult to get it just right, but it comes with practice. Reading tutorials and articles can also help. Here's an interesting article from NIKON on how to photograph fireworks with some of their camera models. Also, make sure to read these tips from Digital Photography School.
