Pro tip: Tonight's edition is fireworks! Fireworks look really cool in real life but often don't result in the type of photo you had hoped. You get one explosion or sparkler at a time. Longer exposures can get you more but then the firework can be blurry or lose their shape from the light trail. There is a super easy way to merge many images together in photoshop. For example this photo is actually about 15 images, all combined in less than 10 minutes. First open photos into photoshop. Select which you want to be your main image. Then open the rest of the your firework photos, and using the lasso tool select the firework blast and drag or copy the layer onto the base picture. Here's the important piece: go to your layer menu window on the right and above your layers there is a pull down blend menu. It default is normal. Select one of the firework layers you dragged on top and change that pull down menu to 'lighter color' this is only going to show you the parts of the above image that is brighter than the base image. This changes how the layers interact and only the brighter part of the addition firework you put there should show. Then you can move the layer around to where it looks best and even do a bit of masking to really make the blend perfect!
