Images taken at the annual fireworks display in Lionville, during the Uwchlan Township Community Day in Chester County PA.
If you are a local, you know it was a fun night!
The 2nd Annual Fire & Wine Festival at Black Walnut Winery in Sadsburyville, Chester County, PA!
The following images are for the wonderful fire masters of the evening!
Many, many thanks to the gentlemen of the Sadsburyville Fire Company (Company 31), who threw wood pallet after pallet into the sometimes gigantic bonfire!

Yesterday was the annual Lionville Community day, which ended with a great set of Fireworks!!
Hope you enjoy!
On a technical side, this was my first real chance to use my new Canon T5i (700D), and for some reason, it takes SO LONG to cycle between pictures, even with a fast memory card!
I’m going to do some more testing, but my much older Canon XTi seems to be a much better camera for Fireworks.
It is that time of the year again for fireworks!!
For those of you in Chester County PA area, here is a guide to local events that my friends of at County Line Magazine put together!

My fellow photographer friend, Dan Potter, also put together a nice list of do’s and don’t when photographing fireworks!
I do take issue with his Bulb settings (#2) comment.
Looking back into my collection…
What my data suggests, that you might be referring to an older analog film based camera, and if memory serves me correctly, Nikon did the SAME THING on their line during that time!
In both cases (Canon vs Nikon), it was the nature of analog film cameras to have the Speeds on the Upper Dial and the Aperture on the Lens itself.
These days, both are done via the various digital modes, one being (M)anual.
Dan also makes a good point to “know your location” and to be able to “adjust quickly”. (#4)
In the various years that I have photographed the Good Neighbor Fireworks, their launch area does seem to be a moving target from year to year!
In any case, enjoy the tips and have a GREAT 4th of July Weekend!!
I have been playing with the idea of publishing a photography book for some time, and after my experience with producing Madison’s 10th birthday gift, I decided to make a first real attempt.
So what was my first real book going to be about?
Looking back at my recent history, it only makes sense that I do something about covered bridges, and I already had the content from the presentation I did back in October 2012 for Citadel bank.
This time is going to be easier from the standpoint that I only had a limited number of pictures, and a layout with the text.
So after a couple of hours, I was able to put the following together using the simple Adobe Lightroom module, and uploading to Blurb.com.
I invite you to take a look, and let me know what you think.
With this first book done, and I’m sure that I’ll revisit at some point, I am beginning to put together some ideas on themed books.
This time, using Blurb’s SmartBook application to put together my next adventure, namely because it seems to offer far more options and controls than what is available in the built-in Adobe Lightroom module.
In the meantime, let me know what you think of the book!
