I Love Shooting Fireworks
Yes, both shooting as in lighting them and shooting as in snapping at them. I love the nice surprises that challenging lighting and focus bring.
The local kids who used to be little, but are now teens and able to invest in really amazing displays.
The shots that look like outer space.
The remote control truck the kids rigged up to drive around spewing sparks.
The colorful boxes and wacky names, and the way they look lit by fireworks light.
At little depth of field even.
And just general gorgeousness. Always a treat to upload the photos and see what I caught.
