My two favorite fireworks shot this year are very different. I had a chance to shoot the annual city fireworks show from a vantage point near their launch at the old Heinz factory. It seemed as if they were exploding directly overhead.
The other memorable fireworks shot was during a photo shoot with the fire department igniting illegal fireworks to show their danger. They decided to ignite a particularly large one called a Dyno-Stick. As soon as the flare's flame touched the fuse it blew up showering sparks everywhere and giving us a good scare. Too much fun with the rockets red glare.
