Last 4th of July I planned to shoot the fireworks display but I wanted to try something a little different. Somewhere on the internet in years past I had seen what looked like sea creatures or flowers in the sky. These images were created when the photographer possibly David Johnson (but I honestly can’t remember) had “Pulled Focus” during a long exposure while the firework exploded in the frame, essentially a form of kinetic light painting. These images had been bouncing around in the back of my mind for years now, this forth of July I finally remembered them in time to give it a go. It was way more difficult than I had anticipated, From the varying brightnesses of different explosions to just simply trying to line up a shot to capture the explosion in frame, it was all pretty tough. I did get a few that I was happy with, these are not SOOC I did some minor level adjustments and also cropped the crap out of them to isolate the parts of the image that I liked. Anyway here is a video showing how it all went down, Enjoy.
