  1. Nothing “unique” about this style. I’ve been seeing it “suggested” online every year for a few years now and don’t really like it, myself. Much better to shoot with a nice piece of foreground or something to make the image tell a story and shoot the fireworks as they actually look, more or less, IMO.

  2. Our local fireworks display are in an area that really does not offer much visual interest like a riverfront or urban setting. The focus blur technique, for me, is a way to paint with the light of the firework, creating unique almost abstract images, vibrant with color. https://flic.kr/s/aHskfxHjBW
