11 DIY Patriotic Projects
I really love watching fireworks for the fourth of July; they’re so fun and colorful! We always go watch the professional fireworks at a nearby park, but in our own backyard we play with snaps and sparklers. One of my favorite things to do is “write” with sparklers and photograph it; it makes such a pretty picture effect! (It’s really cool for weddings too!)
It’s surprisingly easy to photograph sparkler writing! You just need to set a few settings on your camera, then set it up on a tripod and go!
It works best if you can write in cursive, and you have to write backwards so that it reads correctly to the camera facing you, but with a little practice you can get some pretty cool shots!
