Fireworks are great even before countries like the United States have 4th of July.They can make great lighting for photographs as well. Depending on your goal you can use just fireworks or you can add additional light to your scene. Either way practice before you go out to capture sharp or non-sharp images for the best photographs!

Okay - butterflies. Something cool , but how do you find them? If you go for walks or know people who go on walks ask where they have seen butterflies usually. On nice days go to those spots and try and capture butterflies in the area. Butterflies are fast so be ready to capture them. Butterflies are also very vibrant so plan as best as possible to do that as well. Oftentimes even having a butterfly mindset on hand can help when you see a butterfly- meaning you don’t need to go out specifically for look for butterflies.If you do decide to try and have a photoshoot with a butterfly, also take advantage of any of the flowers that are nearby as well.

#8 farmers market

A local event like the farmers market is another great example. Get on a cool fit and go to your local farmers market. There may be many people there and also there will be amazing food to try out as well!

#9 find an open road

This one is my favorite because it works anywhere in any state. When you out traveling for the summer back some cool road shot photos and try and stand out!
