Fireworks: July 4, 2012

I've had a lot of great coverage of my blogs and videos about photographing fireworks over the past week or so. I was featured on the B&H site, on Chase Jarvis's blog, on creativeLIVE and even in a local Alabama site. A big thanks to everyone who helped promote the blog and class.

Fireworks over Lake Union in Seattle

Today we had fantastic weather in Seattle (locals know that it typically rains throughout June and until July 5). Clear skies over Lake Union gave way to another fantastic pyrotechnics show. This year I was invited to join my wonderful friend Photo Sister LaRae Lobdell at her studio that overlooks Gasworks Park and Lake Union, the site of the annual fireworks show. I just got back from the show and wanted to share some of the images from this year.

Enjoy!
