Is a model release on file if needed? (Yes/No/NA)
When and where was the photo taken?
Taken July 4, 2010 in Arlington, Virginia.
This photo was taken on July 4, 2010 from just in front of the Marine Corps Memorial in Arlington, Virginia. I tried to include the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Memorial and the United States Capitol, with of course, the fireworks. I was also hoping to have some dark shadows of the trees in the foreground. It fits July because it represents the 4th of July in our nation's capital.
- A tripod is necessary for fireworks as you must leave the shutter open for longer than you can hold steady by hand.
- I also used a shutter remote to avoid movement.
