Thursday evening we headed to our friends for an annual get together before Riverton Country Club held their fireworks display. They live at an excellent vantage point for the show, so the past few years I’ve brought along a camera and tripod to capture some photos 1.
This year I opted to shoot with just about as wide a field of view as I could muster. I believe the most I zoomed was to 15 mm 2, it’s a 14-42 mm lens. This allowed me to capture more of the foreground. The explosions are not as large in frame, but the overall photos tend to be more interesting. Though I probably should go back and crop a good number so the rule of thirds is in effect. My favorite image from the evening is below. I love how the firework angled as it is exploded so we see it from a side-angle. If you’d like to see all my favorites, check out my flickr album.
