It just wouldn’t be right to make a trip to Walt Disney World and not try some photos of their fireworks shows!  We used a Fastpass for EPCOT’s Illuminations show which brought us to a designated area near one of the gift shops in the Showcase Plaza.  We lined up at the entrance little early so I could get along a rope line without anyone in front.  It was my first time taking fireworks photos so a few were a bright mess, but others like this one I’m completely happy with.

The next time (there will be a next time!) I will go with a different location.  Maybe one along a fence so there’s nothing but water in front of me, or something along the back.  There are definitely some locations which could lead to interesting silhouettes.

I have a few more Illuminations photos I’ll add to this post soon.  If you’re interested in learning more about shooting fireworks check out this eBook – it’s not just about fireworks, but the samples are from Disney!
