On the fourth of July…our family generally goes to a party for our church held at a friend’s house.
I don’t know about you…but for me the 4th isn’t the 4th. WHATT?? 😆
UNLESS…you have fireworks, that is 😀 .
I have a lot of memories from previous 4th of July’s. One (not-so-great) memory that concerns the gal in the selfie with me…is also concerning fireworks. You see, we used to be allowed to bring fireworks to the party and shoot them off during. But people were being irresponsible and unsafe and my friend was at the bad receiving end. She got hit in the face with some of the flying debris of a rocket firework. 😯 Don’t worry though…she was okay after a while.
Moral? Stay safe y’all. Always act responsibly. Your carelessness could hurt someone else.
That said I ❤ LOVE ❤ fireworks! Loud noises don’t bother me and I love taking pictures. This is the 1st 4th of July that I’ve had a dslr to mess with.
So where do I watch fireworks if I don’t do it at the party? At home. Everyone else goes to a fireworks show. But that’s not something my family has ever done. Don’t know why. This year my sis wasn’t with us so we went back and did our own fireworks.
For me the 4th of July is a time where I photography anything in my path (isn’t that everyday, Emma? Uh…yeah. I guess it is. ). Nature, fireworks, food, people, etc.
I did notice that you can get much closer up with a wide angle lens. Just in case you were wondering…I DO know that wide angle lenses are mostly used in landscapes. But there weren’t many landscapes to talk of at the party so…yep.
Anyways I had a good 4th of July. I hope you did, too. I do think I haven’t gotten the hang of fireworks pictures. My ISO was too high for my taste and my shutter speed was too low. 😥
How was your fourth?
Did anyone say ‘may the 4th be with you’, to you? (I think it’s annoying!)
Did you take fireworks pictures?
