I finally had the chance to attend a WaterFire event in Providence, RI Saturday, Sept. 25th. I’d been wanting to go for a long time and I finally had a free night and I took advantage to make some time-exposure, high-dynamic range (HDR), and panoramic photographs during the event. The sights, sounds, and scent of the wood fires burning engulf the senses, and of course, the event is a photographer’s dream. I saw plenty of photography enthusiasts who had the same idea, and I’m sure it’s a regular ritual. There’s lots of angles one could take; I chose to make purely scenic photographs as I’m more often a photographer of people so landscapes and scenic photographs are a fun diversion for me. It would be great if my town, Nashua, had something like this. Quite a crowd draw and it was obviously great for the local economy-restaurants were packed!
