Last 4th was a chance to really put what I read into practice. Understanding the fundamentals is no replacement for actual experience. So, having scouted my position, parked the truck in a suitable location, I was ready with tripod up and shutter release attached. Sitting on the roof helped get me get some clear shots, but as is the case with these kinds of shows, you got to get the best ones early as the smoke builds up, rendering later shots hazy.
I’m looking forward to getting back to Disneyland – the nightly shows there would be great to catch with the Magic Kingdom in view. Better yet…perhaps an offsite location to get a different angle as well as avoid the crowds…and costs.
