I have read three or four difference articles on shooting fireworks and, in my opinion, all except one were incorrect. The problem is that the incorrect articles were written without covering enough of the basics of shutter speed and aperture, i.e. they were written for the masses shooting on AUTO. If you want really good fireworks photos, you can’t shoot it on AUTO. Roll up your sleeves, switch to manual, and read the correct way to shoot fireworks in this NYIP article.
