Photos – Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks NYC 2015

july4th2015-6a

The Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks was again on the East Side this year. Even though I shot from the same Brooklyn vantage point this year, it was a different experience. Macy had changed the show. Instead of replicating the same program from each of the barges, Macy’s had the larger blasts in the center with smaller blasts closer to the shore. Different effect, different experience.

All photos were taken with my Canon 7D Mark II & Canon 17-55mm EF-S lens using my previously posted tips on how to photograph fireworks. I did find that f/11 worked very well. Take a look.

Canon 7D Mark II Tutorial – How to Photograph Fireworks 2015

fireworks-july42015

Once a year, Macy’s holds the biggest 4th of July party over the East River — the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks. The crowd lines up along the East River (or the Hudson on alternating years). Think New Year’s Eve in Times Square x 40 blocks spanning both NYC & Brooklyn! It’s pretty crazy, […]

Tokina AT-X 11-20mm f/2.8 Pro DX – First Impressions

highline-tokina06122015-sample1

Why can’t Canon make a superwide zoom with an f/2.8? I have been asking myself that question for years. I have been using the Canon 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 EF-S for almost 10 years. It’s a good lens except in low-light situations when you really could use a f/2.8.

I was hoping that Sigma would release […]
