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!
