Canadian photographer David Johnson recently found himself at the International Fireworks Show in Ottawa, Canada and while there, he captured some of the most amazing long-exposure shots fireworks you’ve never seen before. Johnson told The Colossal about his method:
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.
Unlike usual firework photos that make long trails across the sky, Johnson’s photos look like flowers with little triangular plumes coming to a point. Some of the little stems looks like deep sea creature, tells Johnson. You can see more pictures on this page.
