Bulb is a setting that allows the shutter to stay open for as long as the release is pressed (remember to use a remote shutter release for this otherwise everything will get very messy). Then all I did in between bursts was to cover the front of the lens with a black glove (which I just happened to be wearing to keep me warm) and then remove it again when the next set of fireworks went up. This allows for more fireworks to be layered over the top of each other.

Hi Mark,

So all you did was keep the shutter wide open for as long as your camera would allow..??

With the Fireworks (Blue,Red and White) How did you get Multi Layers to work..??

Trying to understand what you meant.!!

That's right, in the 2nd image this is one exposure but with 3 parts (red, green, blue) taken one after the other by covering the lens in between while the shutter was open.

So in other words, green fireworks go up and at this point open the shutter. From this point on the shutter remains open until the end of the process. Next cover the front of the lens. When next fireworks go up eg blue then remove the cover again. Once enough ofthat colouris captured then cover the lens again. Now for the red and then close the shutter at the end..... there you have it.

Yep as the fireworks are very bright in comparison to the background. Just remember to use a remote release so you don't shake the tripod.
