Epic tips on how to take awesome firework pictures with your iPhone. Not everybody has access to the latest DSLR camera to take photos of fireworks. We have therefore complied a list of useful tips to enable you take some great photos of fireworks using your iPhone or any other smart phone.
1. Location. Location. Location.
Choose your location well. For a large professional fireworks display you will need to ensure that you are quite far back from the display.
As the firework breaks in a professional display are quite wide and big, the further away you are the more firework effects you will capture on your camera phone.
Please make sure that you are out of the way of any trees, buildings, lamp posts and power lines which may obstruct your camera view.
2. Use A Tripod.
Any shaking whilst using your iPhone, even very slight shaking will blur your image.
Please try to use a tripod, even a small hand-sized tripod will help.
3. Turn Off The Flash.
Please make sure that you turn off the flash before you start to take your firework pictures.
By turning off the flash you will help to reduce the blurring.
You can turn off the flash by clicking the lightning bolt symbol in the corner of the screen.
4. Simply Make A Video.
If you do not want the hassle of trying to capture great fireworks pictures, flip your iPhone horizontally and just simply record a video.
Again if possible please try to record the video using a tripod.
Whatever you do, don’t be a plonker like the guy in the video below
5. Take Lots Of Pictures.
An iPhone is never going to take as good pictures as a fancy DSLR camera.
Therefore take, as many fireworks pictures as possible using the tips we have given you, and although there may be bad pictures there will always be a few good ones you can use.
You can also use awesome apps like Instagram to enhance your pictures through the many different filters they offer.
Please feel free to email your pictures to Epic HQ and we’ll post the best shots on the epicfireworks blog. Good Luck

The Cannes Firework Festival (also known as the Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique) is an annual fireworks competition which originally started in 1967.
The competition is held in the Bay of Cannes and consists of several different countries competing to win the firework competition.
The fireworks are lit from three barges anchored in the sea. The barges are around 350 metres from the shore and approximately 180 metres apart.
Each country chooses a theme and presents a 25 minute show which is synchronised to music.
The competition is judged and the winners of the competition are awarded with the Vestale d’argent. The judges make their decision on the theme, how well it is synchronised, originality, sound track, colours, set-up, flow of the fireworks, and the general feel of the show.
The schedule of events are as follows:
Portugal – Team Luso Pyrotecnia – Wednesday 6th March 2013 10.00pm
