Yes, these are fireworks. They were shot earlier this summer by David Johnson, and you can see more on his web site: daveyjphoto.com … he shot them at the Casino du Lac Leamy Sound & Light show back in August. Republished them here with Johnson’s permission.
The photos have been featured on several high-profile blogs, and I saw them on the Atlantic last week. He created them using long exposure shots and adjusting the focus of the shots while in progress.
I asked David for a bit more info about the all the great (ahem) exposure his photographs have received.
“Around Ottawa, I’ll try and shoot whatever I can get. I’ve shot a ton of Pinecrest little league baseball photos, quite a few nature photos from around Ottawa South, and basically whatever I aim my lens at. I was absolutely thrilled to see how much people have been enjoying my photos, and I’m glad I got to share them with the world!”
He’s now selling prints of the photo through his web site,
