I may have mentioned (or neglected to mention) that last year was the first year that I attempted to photograph fireworks. Well due to the disastrously late arrival we had at the location and my attempting to set up in the dark with a penlight, my efforts were less than spectacular.
This year, however, I vowed it would be different. We arrived very early prior to the display, and other than coping with my dear daughter’s boredom, I had an easy-peasy time getting the gear ready to rock and roll.
I debated about whether to use my 50 mm lens versus my 24-70, and chose the latter because we were SO close to the display. So with that, I present to you some of my favorites from this year’s 4th of July fireworks display!
