This shot was my very first firework photo I took as photographer with a camera that has full manual controls. Before this I had a p&s that just didn’t fair well with firework photos and when I got more into photography, I got a DSLR and that’s when the fun happened. Taken in 2011 with a Nikon D7000 + 18-105. I actually took this from my town’s local cemetery…yeah I little creepy at night. - Waterbury, VT
This photo was taken at a friends house in town and for some reason, my town likes to move the fireworks around every year so you really never have a definite idea where they will be launched! I decided to leave the house in the foreground to add some interest. Over the years, it has become one of my favorite shots. Taken in 2013 with a Nikon D7000 + 17-55 2.8 in Waterbury, VT
In this photo I wanted to capture the crowd from a small town and the fact how close you are too these powerful pyrotechnics. This photo was actually selected by B&H Photo for one of their articles, have a read here. Taken in 2014 with a Nikon D7000 + Tokina 12-24 f/4 in Richmond, VT
A typical firework photo but it’s one of my favorites because of the clouds and the late blue hour for me makes it more interesting. I love getting the sparkly trails from the firework leading up to the explosion. Taken in 2016 with a Nikon D610 + 24-120 f/4 in Richmond, VT
This one has quickly became my favorite because of the color, the sky was clear and it was dark but not dark enough to have a completely black sky. Taken in 2018 with a Fujifilm XT2 + 18-55 in Richmond, VT.
