Magic Kingdom 4th of July Fireworks!
Hey everyone, and Happy 4th of July from us here at Disney Photography Blog!!
I was lucky enough to shoot this year’s Magic KingdomÂ 4th of July fireworks show from the beach at the Polynesian Resort, and I just wanted to share a few of the frames I captured from it. Since this was my first time shooting, I spent about a third of the show in awe of all the big bursts, and then remembered that I should probably be shooting. I thought that there would be more 360 degree perimeter shots to take, so I went with only a wide angle lens, whereas next time, I will probably go with something more in the 24-70 range. I also overestimated the brightness of the bursts, and shot the show with a 3 stop Neutral Density filter, when I probably should have shot it with a 2 stop ND. But, we live and we learn, and there is always next year!
So without any further ado, here are photos of the July 4th fireworks at Walt Disney World!
The show truly is remarkable to see, and the 360 degree perimeter bursts are really something special. It was a treat to both watch and shoot the show, and next time I’ll definitely be trying the 2 stop ND filter, with hopefully better results.
That said, we hope you all have a wonderful holiday, stay safe, and take great fireworks photos wherever you may be! Thanks for reading, and have a great day!!
