Edwige and I attempted to get as close as possible to the fireworks this year. My intention was to photograph the miniatures watching the fireworks from the shore of the Mississippi River. That all changed when I realized that the fireworks were exploding to our left (not above the water as I had hoped) and practically overhead. As a result, I had to handhold the camera shooting at 1/20th of a second. It was complicated. Anyway, it worked out well enough.
