We usually rent my mom's lake house in Ithaca to other people over the 4th of July, but this year we serendipitously ended up with it. I have a suspicion that little minds will be planning to perch on that same dock to watch pyrotechnics next year.
How do you photograph fireworks? It's actually easier than photographing a 1 year old. You need a shutterspeed at about 1/10th of a second, 800 ISO and something to rest your arm on (or a tripod). It's best to wait for the grand finale before you start clicking. I though the reflection off the lake gave these images a lot of interest.
|Are those children in sweatshirts on the 4th of July? Why yes, yes it is! (I prefer it to super sized bugs though)|
