How to Edit Firework Photos

Easily enhance your firework photos using ON1 Photo RAW 2018. By adding in contrast to your photo you will help to separate your fireworks from your background. Be careful when overdoing exposure because your firework highlights can get blown out quickly. I would recommend using basic tonal adjustments on fireworks photos because it may seem unnatural if you make bright and vibrant changes. Once you’ve set your tone and brought back some of the color into your firework explosions, take your photo into effects to start making creative adjustments. A great effect to use on fireworks is Dynamic Contrast because it helps to bring back some detail in your explosions and light trails. If you have distractions in your photo like people or objects, quickly subdue them by using a vignette.
