    Hi AndyC,
    the black matte surface is used as a 'black card' to block out light entering the lens when taking long exposure shots; in this case, fireworks... you can literally capture only what you want on that frame without stray light entering and over-exposing your frame

    All you need to do is just to hold the black card against your lens - hence blocking out the light. No need to make it like a lens cap or cylinder.

    And remember to be careful, not to touch the cam (& cause movement).

    How long you guys expose for fireworks?

    Few seconds? Couple of minutes?

    Depends on how intense the action is and your preference. No hard and fast rule.
