Firework Photography

Watched the Celebration of Light last night, USA were the first to compete with their fireworks working in tune to music from the 40's such as Fever and Mambo Italiano. It was really spectacular.Fireworks at Festival of Lights show by USA at English Bay in Vancouver, B.C., on July 21, 2010.

As I was watching the fireworks from an apartment overlooking English Bay I was able to see the crowds of thousands lined up along the beach and parks watching the performance. At one point the crowd resembled that of a concert when the ballad comes on and everyone holds up their lighters, with the light from their display monitors on their cameras illuminating them. This got me thinking about the thousands of photographs that would be taken that night and firework photography. Below are some photo
graphs I found online and really love (think the silhouettes really make some of the images):
