The fourth of July means many things, and for photographers, one of the most exciting and challenging aspects of this holiday is capturing amazing photos of fireworks. The bright lights in the night paint the sky with multi-colored flames in a way that can be spectacular to witness and capture with your camera. And while it may seem that fireworks–and articles about how to capture fireworks with your DSLR–only appear for a few nights in early July, there are actually tons of nights from coast to coast all summer long when the skies are illuminated with fireworks.
For APS-C shooters, the Sigma 17-50mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM is a gigantic leap upwards in terms of overall performance compared to the variable aperture standard zoom kit lenses shipped with so many DSLRs.
Here’s a small sampling of Corbin Crimmin’s great ski and winter photography, along with great tips that will help you learn from this elite ski shooter, whether your winter shoot is at a big ski resort with your friends, or even at the smallest of sled hills with your little kids.
