Shoot Some Fireworks

  • Sep 14, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • Pittsford Flour Mill

This month will be a little different from our usual "shoot for edit" program where we normally go out together and shoot, then edit our photos at the next meeting. THIS time we'll meet first to discuss camera settings and shooting techniques at our Wednesday evening, September 11 meeting, THEN meet the following Saturday the 14th to actually take our shots. We'll post our results on the website and go over our results online!

We'll photograph the beautiful fireworks show in Pittsford at 9 p.m. The Town of Pittsford puts on its "Pittsford Celebrates" event all day on Saturday and then they finish it off with a great fireworks display. The fireworks launch from a position behind the Grain Tower and if you're positioned with your camera across the canal near the library you can photograph them with an interesting foreground and nice reflections in the canal.

We'll park and meet behind the Pittford Flour Mill and then take the short walk around to our shooting position behind one of the businesses beside the library. Details to follow.

This is a chance to do some great night photography along with the fireworks!

    Nice job Carl. Great instruction beforehand, and things couldn't have gone smoother on the night of the fireworks itself. We had the best seats in Pittsford!!

    Bringing my wife - we'll probably make this a day affair. This will tire her out so that I can take all the photos that I want while she chills and watches the fireworks!

      Have her bring a lawn chair so she doesn't have to sit on the damp grass!
