Here’s a 60 second iPhone photo tip for your Fourth of July fireworks photos.

Use burst mode.

It’s not at all obvious how to do a photo burst. Here are the steps. 

💥open the camera
💥slide the white shutter button to the left
💥hold it there for the whole firework interval
💥later on, open up your burst and scroll through all of the photos in the burst (use the slider at the bottom of your screen).
💥put a check mark next to your favorites
💥hit done
💥you can then choose between keeping your favorites and deleting the rest of the photos in the burst or keeping the entire burst.
💥 bonus: open up your top photo from the selection and make some minor edits. I love to boost the contrast and increase the sharpening.

🏆you did it!
