Welcome to my pedestal. 

Fourth of July 2015 - Fireworks!

...because OF COURSE that's what this week's project would be. July 4th came and went as it usually does, but I managed to snag a timelapse and some neat firework shots before the night was out. I managed to stand right at the "do not cross" tape at Millburn High School, equipped with my Nikon and the GoPro Hero 4 mounted directly on top. I'm a firm believer that people need to put their cameras down and enjoy the damn fireworks, and despite all of that gear, I did just that! The GoPro was taking the timelapse on its own, and all I needed to do was press my remote release as the fireworks went off. I barely even looked at the screen.

The timelapse was a little overexposed (it was my first time using Night Timelapse mode), and I decided against cropping the "black areas" in the photos. Also, I kept the town of Summit's fireworks show in the shots (the teeny tiny background fireworks in some of them). Overall, though, not a bad night spent near explosives.
