    If I am using the live feature on my iPhone to take the sparkler picture should I turn on my flash if I’m taking them in the pitch dark? Also, what if I take them in light then there is no need for flash right?

      Hi Ash! This guide is mainly structured for taking photos on a DSLR camera, but here are the tips I have for shooting with an iPhone:

      Check out apps like Slow Shutter Cam that can help you manually override your smartphone’s settings to take the picture. You can use the Live Mode on the newer iPhone models — once you’ve taken the photo, select ‘Long Exposure.’ You shouldn’t need to turn on the flash for this.
