Keep the Shutter Held Down

SUMMARY: Remove 'camera shake' by not releasing the shutter button too early.

To help remove blurriness due to 'camera shake', when taking digital photographs of fireworks, as you press the shutter button to take your picture, keep the button held down during the entire length of the exposure. Even though you may be taking photos with a tripod, it is still possible for the release of the shutter button during an exposure to shake the camera a tiny amount, just enough for a crisp photo to become slightly blurry.
