We spent the the 4th of July with friends who live quite close to a big fireworks show.
We had a small little show of our own and then headed out for the big show.
It was like we were sitting directly underneath the fireworks. They were beautiful. Every year Jared always tells me to sit back and enjoy the fireworks, but I can’t help but take photos of them. They’re just so beautiful not to share and remember for later.
I also get to practice my photography skills a little. I use a tripod, so I don't get any camera shake when I press the shutter button. I actually do get to enjoy the show because I'm not actually holding a camera.
I usually focus my camera and then I use a remote to press the shutter down, so I don't even touch the camera. I think it helps the photos come out cleat and with very little blur.
