Blasting My Bucket List | Professional Mining Industrial Photographer James Hodgins

While I was on my latest project I had the chance to scratch off a few things from my photo bucket list.  Yes I have one of those and I am constantly adding stuff to it as the years go on.  Recently I had the chance to watch a controlled blast at the Copper Mountain Mine just outside of Princeton British Columbia.  We had a great vantage point high up on the opposite side of the pit where we had a birds eye view of the whole event.  I have photographed many things in the explosive industry but this was the first time I was able to witness the finished explosion.  I hope in the future I can get the opportunity to create some unique visuals using the blast as a sub focal point.  Yes, the brain was ticking immediately after this event.
