july 4th fireworks on lake wylie ~ independence day 2014 {charlotte professional photographer}

Anyone who has followed me for a while knows that I am slightly obsessed with photographing fireworks on the 4th of July. It was first just part of a technical challenge that I set for myself, but every year that I shoot the show I just become more amazed with the lights, colors, movement, reflection and beauty of each shot. There is a big element of randomness to it because of the shooting method (and the fact that I have no clue what is about to go off)! I guess it feels a little like splattering paint against a canvas and seeing what results. Compared to my portrait work where I typically have a specific idea or vision, photographing fireworks is very freeing.

The weather yesterday could not have been more perfect (even with the threat of Hurricane Arthur off the east coast ;))! Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!! Enjoy!
