Fireworks before the Fourth

Well, it’s almost Fourth of July. That means fireworks everywhere and a lot of me flinching from synesthesia because I sometimes see bright lights from noises (a double whammy with fireworks). But last Saturday I muddled through it, focusing my energy on taking photographs with my camera on a tiny tripod on top of a rock wall (which led to very crooked pictures and thus a lot of cropping).

If you want to learn how to take long exposure fireworks photos like I did, check out Photojojo’s guide to shooting fireworks. The majority of these were 6 second exposures.


Not fireworks, just fire. Long exposure of a fire pit.

Bonus: yesterday we had a weird storm and this is what I saw when I looked at the sky at sunset. IMG_439007022014e
