The July 4th celebration goes on across the country but in San Antonio it is held at Woodlawn Lake, courtesy of the San Antonio Parks Foundation. This was a two camera job, so my assistant Mirka came with me and we took the digital view camera plus the Canon 1DS Mark III as a backup. We got an incredible location thanks to Parks Foundation help and the only variable was the height of the fireworks. I wanted to get the water as well as the fireworks and we would have to wait and see.
As the show started, it was obvious that the view camera needed a wider lens, so I did what I could to get shots and we set the Canon up with its widest lens and between the two cameras we got some great shots. Next year will be even better and while the celebration is over, it is nice to see the two best shots of the night.
