Yesterday I posted The Fireworks That Weren’t and today I want to share the opposite. Make sure you read the beginning to this story so you’re in the loop.
That night I was shooting with the Leica M9 and Zeiss 25mm lens. That meant that my perspective of view was extremely wide. No zoom meant dealing with what I was given.
So I decided to take a few steps back with my tripod.
I reframed the shot so that I could make use of the tents that were in the frame. However, I also made use of the people underneath the tents.
Light is a beautiful thing. Working with mixed lighting is something that I really enjoy as a photographer. The idea that artificial and natural light can be controlled separately is so intriguing to me.
I feel as though this perspective and light adds so much to your average fireworks photograph.
What do you think?
Thanks for reading and happy shooting,
