How to Create Flower Fireworks on the 4th of July
How do you create those really soft, flowery fireworks photos?
I am gonna keep this short and sweet! The trick to create these flower-esque firework photos is really simple
- Frame your shot
- A good starting point for camera settings are 100 iso, 5.6/f, 1 second shutter
- Turn your focus ring until completely out of focus.
- Press the shutter button once a firework goes off in your view finder
- Turn the focus ring from out-of-focus to in-focus over the course of the 1 second shutter.
- The End!
I’ve even created this little animated gif to illustrate the process
