These photos were taken at the Olentangy Summer Blast, a local high school annual event. I’ve learned a couple of other things from photographing fireworks at the OSB (see my tip post here) firework displays are erratic. You never know how high, low, wide or what shape a blast will be. It helps to have a vantage point that will allow you to capture the entirety of the exploding rockets if at all possible. In my case, I had nowhere to back up to in order to get a better spot to capture a wider range of the fireworks without being on someones private property… and they had warning tape stretched across their yard.
Have a happy 4th of July and be considerate of pets and people that don’t take well to fireworks.
