Like everyone else in America on Independence Day (July 4th), I obsessively tried to capture photos of fireworks. After reading Naptime Momtog’s tutorial, I set my camera appropriately…except I failed to use a tripod.
I was too busy taking photos of the kids and our street performance.
Every time a bomb burst in the air, I would quickly spin myself in the general direction, click and hope for the best, sometimes only catching the tail end of the fireworks.
As a result, my firework photos have a slight swirly burred effect to them.
At least the photos of the kids with their sparklers came out really cool…
…and I don’t fear photographing the lights anymore.
