    a basic post processing that takes less than 10 minutes to do in CS5 that may be useful for those taking fireworks shot.



    the "after"/final shot was from 2 photos from a cam mounted on a tripod.
    1 shot taken earlier with the correct exposure of the sky and background.
    the second shot was taken during the fireworks display.

    only the fireworks were added on the original photo taken earlier using selective selection via color range with the fuzziness at around 100 to 180 depending on the photo and the amount of smoke you are willing to bring into the final shot.

    i'd actually prefer an after fireworks show exposure when the sky has cleared of smoke, just for reality's sake..

    yes it can be done that way, problem is, at 8pm at night.. all you'll get is a pitch black background and compensating that with long exposure would make the sea silky smooth. another way but tend to be a bit of work is duplicating or triplicating the same photo of the actual fireworks then lightening one layer and darkening the other layer.. same as one would do with pseudo hdr processing, but its too complicated as there are some other process that needs to be done before merging the photo into one final image..

    below is a sample of a firework photo that was post processed using a single file..like i said earlier, it a lot more tedious work as you will be working with a sky background which is not very clean and dark..



    the end result however would still be the same. as for night photography, i normally will not take long exposure with a pitch black sky which is why i modified the sky background for the fireworks shot..

    1. convert to bw (silver efex)
    2. add noise
    3. add paper texture for old paper look, play with blending mode; overlay, softlight, hardlight etc.
    4. add torn border & crumpled effect, I used a scanned old torn envelope (you can download online), play with blending mode; overlay or multiply
