This past weekend brought the Cityfolk festival in downtown Dayton on Friday night, a tour of the famous Westcott House in Springfield (by Frank Lloyd Wright) on Satuday, and another visit to the Cityfolk festival for fireworks on Sunday. I got a kind of ridiculous amount of fireworks photos, and I will be posting every one that I edited. So, prepare for about 30 total photos this week! So either A. Sorry, or B. You’re welcome! All shots posted in the order they were taken.
This was taken about 2 or 3 hours before the fireworks started, when I staked out a spot down by the river. But I wasn’t in a van down by the river. 🙂
In contrast, this was how nuts things got about 1 hour before the fireworks. They started swarming and I had to really protect my spot since we all know that people, generally speaking, are pushy jerks. 🙂
Fireworks – all of these were taken at low ISO (100), narrow aperture (usually between f/16-f/22), and long exposure (anywhere from 6-25 seconds):
But by far, my absolute favorite shot of the night is this:
I’m pretty happy with it… I love that you can clearly see the people on the bridge enjoying one awesome thing that Dayton has to offer!
Thanks for looking!
