Happy 4th of July!
To celebrate today’s holiday, here are some photos from last night’s performance of the Magic Kingdom 4th of July fireworks as seen from the beach of the Polynesian Resort. I ended up shooting the whole show in portrait mode, as I only brought with me a 35mm lens, which was nowhere near wide enough to capture the show in landscape. With some cropping, it was possible to get some square crops, but I actually like a lot of the portrait ones I got. Here they are!
It is amazing to see during this show how high the bursts go, and how small they make Cinderella Castle look.
It is always a wow moment when the 360 degree fireworks come on to close out the show.
Such a fun show to see and shoot, as well as a great way to honor our country. All these photos were taken with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IIIÂ and my newly acquired Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSMÂ lens, both of which are available at Amazon. Thanks for reading!
