Hi.

Really: 5 things I learned FROM today. Share with those you love (or even just kinda like).

1 - Long Exposure Shots of Fireworks

Transient

Stunning and gorgeous, these long exposures of fireworks make so evident the comparisons to flowers and sea creatures. David Johnson explains his technique over at Colossal:

The technique I used was a simple refocus during the long exposure. Each shot was about a second long, sometimes two. I’d start out of focus, and when I heard the explosion I would quickly refocus, so the little stems on these deep sea creature lookalikes would grow into a fine point. The shapes are quite bizarre, some of them I was pleasantly surprised with.
