Fun with Flash at the Fireworks

This year I decided to take some shots of the boys enjoying the festivities down on the beach instead of going with the traditional sky full of explosions.  A flash, some sync know how and a glow stick go a long way to create some memorable photos that capture more of the emotion of the celebration then a standard pyrotechnics photo.  Don’t get me wrong, shots of fireworks can be unbelievably beautiful, but in this case it would not remind me of the blast we were having playing down below.
