Photographing Fireworks July 4th 2012 Results

This was my second year attempting to photograph fireworks. Last year I set out on my first attempt to capture amazing photographs of fireworks and I think I was pretty successful.

This year I have to be honest, during the shoot I felt like I was not capturing anything very good. The truth is I ended up being pretty happy with the images once I had a chance to edit them and not look at them on a 3 inch screen on the back of the camera.

There are some things that I did learn and I share them with you in this video. Everything form whether or not I think I was to far away or if I should have done more vertical shots.
