Every Memorial Day weekend, Kansas City kicks off the unofficial start of summer with a massive fireworks display at Liberty Memorial. This year is no different. The show starts around 9:45, weather permitting. I never take photos, or shoot video of the show. Fireworks can be one of the toughest things to shoot, and I don’t have the patience for it. For the people that do, the results can be pretty outstanding. Rob Whitworth is a photographer that knows how to shoot fireworks. The video below is from the 2013 international Fireworks competition in Danang. Whitworth blends still images, time-lapse, tilt-shift, and zoom techniques to showcase the event in a 2 minute short video.I hope the event tonight in Kansas City, looks this good. Hmmmm, maybe I should bring my camera to the event after all.
