Explosions in the Sky/Happy Fourth!


This July 4th, I wanted to share a fun fireworks slideshow I made a while back. I had no idea how these pictures would turn out, but perhaps more importantly, I knew how I didn't want them to look. I knew that I did not want a memory card filled with traditional fireworks photography. I wanted something different, and unique. I experimented with a bunch of techniques like throwing the camera in and out of focus while zooming in and out. I moved the camera from left to right mid exposure. All rules went out the window and each image was a total surprise. I found the entire exercise to be quite liberating. Music is thanks to Sigur Ros.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday.
