Fireworks at the Fair

Fireworks at the fair

The great thing about photographing fireworks is that although you never know what you’re going to get, you always get something interesting. On Friday, some friends and I were at the Marin County Fair. After sundown the fair puts on a nice fireworks show over the lake. I took my little travel tripod to photograph them (a tripod is a must) and although it’s really a pretty poor tripod, it did well enough for me that night. The pictures turned out better than expected. Here are a few of my favorites. Oh yes, it was also the first time I’ve shot fireworks with the moon as a backdrop. The moon is overexposed in all the shots, but it still adds a different element to them.
