It's a flurry of bursts followed by a chorus of predicatable oohs and aaahs. Yes, it's that time of year where we gather round to watch explosions in the sky. There are tips for photographing fireworks all over the web so I'm not about to repeat the usual. On the fourth of July, I like to do something different with my camera. There are no rules, just fun experiments like moving the camera during long exposures, and zooming in and out with slow shutter speeds. Every picture is a unique surprise. Some even take on a surreal, otherwordly appearance. I've assembled some of my favorites into a short piece below. Thanks to Kevin MacLeod for the music.
