I like to think I shoot a few things well. Not great or prefect, but I can snap the shutter and get back what I was hoping to.
But not fireworks.
As Clint Eastwood says in MAGNUM FORCE, “A man’s got to know his limitations.”
Fireworks are mine. I don’t have the inclination to get better at shooting them, nor do I wish to. Frankly, still images of fireworks, outside of some exceptions, are pretty blah to me. Not even sure I love the real things anymore, unless I’m standing on a boardwalk on the Jersey Shore watching them over the ocean.
But, there will be MANY people shooting fireworks tonight. If you still need a good primer, Joe McNally has got you covered.
This image of my boy Chase, with sparkler the other other night is about the best I can do.
So, no fireworks for me tonight I’m just going to have another burger off the grill and read 1776.
Happy 4th of July to all my fellow countrymen!
