If earlier only an experienced photographer with expensive equipment could beautifully shoot fireworks, now everyone can do it. The main thing is to have an iPhone with Live Photos at hand.
First, let’s take a look at how Live Photos work. They are available on all iPhone 6s and up in the Camera app.

To enable Live Photos, do the following:
1. Launch the Camera application on your iPhone or iPad as you always do.
2. Click on the icon with one large and two radiating circles. This will activate Live Photos for your snapshots.
3. Take a photo.
4. Open the Photos app and select a photo taken using Live Photos (the word “LIVE” will be indicated in the upper right corner of the photo).
5. Click on the “LIVE” icon and in the menu that appears, select the Live Photos effect – Pendulum or A loop (examples of use below).
Note. On older iOS versions, to access the section Effects, slide the screen with the photo from bottom to top (see screenshot below).
A loop – The Live Photo will be looped, i.e. will repeat itself over and over again.
Pendulum – turns Live Photo into a looped snapshot that is played back and forth.
Play around with both special effects and choose the one that suits your live fireworks recording best. Pay attention – no one forces you to make a decision “once and for all”! If you wish, you can also return to the menu mentioned above and apply another effect to Live Photos (if you don’t like the chosen one in the end).
I personally prefer Pendulumsince I have long been of the opinion that Live Photos with it turn out to be a little more interesting. But also the effect A loop not bad at all. In general, the choice (as always) is yours.
P.S. If you want to share Live Photos with another user, he will receive it either as a video file with the .mov extension, or as an animated GIF (instruction).
