I mentioned yesterday that the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday. I love the history, the patriotism and of course the fireworks! Last year, I spent the 4th with my dad in Astoria and had an amazing time shooting the fireworks. I had shot fireworks before, but this time I did my homework before going and it really paid off. You can read more about the shoot here.
