There's something magical professional fireworks. Every Fourth of July, we take the kids to our beach, where we, not only see the local show, but also catch a faraway glimpse of the surrounding towns' explosive productions.

How to take the perfect firework photo from your phone
- Stabilize the phone on the ground, or with a tripod (or with very hands).
- Turn off the flash, digital zoom, HDR (or auto-HDR).
