**Possible helpful photo tip** On Monday night my husband and I went to get a photo in front of the castle before the fireworks started (maybe 30mins or so before?). The castle was already roped off, which is great because no one else gets in the photo...but the BEST part was CM Jim! He had a little portable studio light that he used to help light people up enough to take a nice photo with your phone, without having to use the flash (which can wash everything out and give you scary rodent eyes), or not using the flash and coming out too dark! I LOVED that he was doing this for people!!! It made a HUGE difference! He also did a couple different angles too. I don't know if they do this a lot or if we just got lucky, but it's worth stopping by around that time to see! It's a great time to get a photo! (The posted photo is unedited too, so you could touch it up if you'd like as well. Easier too, because of the better lighting)😊 ...AND he even told us just what settings to use on our new Canon DSLR to take night photos of us in front of the castle. He was SO very nice and helpful! It was like he was a little photography angel sent to make my night, and he totally did! πŸ˜„ (Of course we stopped into City Hall and offered or complementsπŸ†)
