Fourth of July

People watch the Fourth of July fireworks at Singing Beach in Manchester by the Sea.

It's always fun to photograph fireworks. The challenge with photographing fireworks that tell a story is trying to capture the bright colorful fireworks as well as exposing for the general scene. It takes some experimentation and since some fireworks are bright and some are darker, your photos will all look a little different.
