I hope everyone had a safe and Happy 4th of July! I scouted this site to shoot the fireworks only using Google maps. I had a general idea of where the city would shoot the fireworks from and I showed up about 45 minutes to an hour before for last recon. The site was perfect, even with the buildings in front as they add scale and depth to the entire photo. This is also the first shoot I used 100% manual settings and shot in RAW.
