I Clicked It Up a Notch - July

For this month, I picked a photo that continues to make me happy and proud. The location was Astoria, Oregon where my dad lives and was taken on the Fourth of July, which just so happens to be my favorite holiday. I did research before going and went into this shoot unsure, but excited. The results were more than I could have hoped for. This is just one of those photos where I had a vision of what I wanted and with a little work I was able to make it happen. I can't wait to see what happens next month!


Settings: ISO 100, 18mm, ss12secs, f/11 (on tripod, shutter on bulb)
