Now for the more technical stuff. Starting with the F-stop, the smaller the number the more light allowed through the lens. Then you need to worry about the shutter speed. To have a chance to capture the light of the fireworks you need a long shutter speed. With shutter speed I start around 2'3", and 4 on the F-stop and make sure I look at the image before adjusting from that point.
There are some fun ways to change the normal firework photo. I like to turn the camera around and photograph the crowd. Another fun thing is on a long exposure start on one spot then rotate the camera a small amount.
