i've tried to do a couple of long exposure pictures photographs before, but since i have no pod, they often turn out to be blurry. However when it comes to fireworks its a different story. Due to the flaming debris being in constant motion, there is no way the light will become blurry. Holding the camera makes the small "fireflies" seem more fragile and flimsy.
