Fireworks Friday

This was taken during Star Wars Weekend at Disney Hollywood Studios a few weeks ago.  I believe this is one of the best fireworks display that I have ever seen.  They call this show the "Symphony in the Stars Fireworks".  While the bursts were going off they have Star Wars Music playing.  It was a great show.

Enjoy!

2-stop isn't too much - when you start to see these 20-30 second fireworks shots, they end up being a big blur; I prefer to be able to see individual fireworks, but that's just my taste. :) I tend to do odd things, like zoom in close on the launchers (especially in Illuminations - or the inferno barge!), or zoom in relatively close on the actual explosion (which gets you some interesting shots)... a couple times when shooting fireworks that were just in a grassy field, I'd get the fireworks then quickly angle the camera down slightly and pop a flash to get a little grass visible on the bottom of the shot. Gotta keep mixing it up. :)

Sunrise at the Hinckley Reservation - Cleveland Metroparks

Photo from an early morning trip to Hinkley Lake in the Hinkley Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks.  Photo taken on May 2, 2015.  This was a 3 bracket exposure (-2, 0, +2) that was merged as an HDR in the latest version of +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC/6.  This is the first I have tried doing this with LightRoom.  I really like the final result as I was able to pull out details from the shadows.  Plus it is a very realistic looking shot.  I think I will be using this more often than I used the traditional HDR before.

Enjoy!

Belle and Beast n the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade

I shot this photo of Belle and Beast in December 2014 during the Festival of Fantasy Parade at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.  This was shot with a full frame camera, the Canon 5D Mark II using the Canon 70-200mm F/2.8L at 200mm.  This is not cropped other than getting it to be square.  I carry this lens around so that I can get closeups of parades, etc.

Have a magical day!

Fireworks Show for the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductions

Last night the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame had a fireworks show for the 2015 Inductions.  I headed down there with several people and met up with a bunch of other photographers.  The show started around 835 and lasted about 25 minutes,  It was a great show.  I really like how we were able to show the fireworks and the Rock Hall in the same photo.

All of the fireworks photos are now on my website at http://www.tjpowellphotography.com/fireworks-show-for-the-2015-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame-inductions 

Enjoy
