Fireworks – Washington, DC

Shooting fireworks is a bit like shooting sunsets – shots are easily boring unless they show more than fireworks or a glowing sun.  The context of the full frame really matters.

Exceptions occur when there’s something unusual.   While shooting July 4th fireworks last week, I didn’t have much context to work with, so I was glad that the show had (at least for me) a few surprises.
