SUMMARY: Shutter speed recommendations for digital fireworks photos.
When taking digital photos of fireworks, set your camera to use an exposure time (the shutter speed) of between a half a second and four seconds. The longer the exposure time, the more of the "burst" that should be recorded. Also, longer exposure times compensate for the lack of available light. Depending on your digital camera, you may be able to get by with just a one second exposure time or you may need all four seconds to bring in enough light, so be sure to experiment.
