It is difficult to take good pictures without having a solid understanding of ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture – the Three Kings of Photography, also known as the “Exposure Triangle”.

Colorful Fireworks Amazingly Morphed Into Abstract Formations

Colorful Fireworks Amazingly Morphed Into Abstract Formations | Camera Techique | Scoop.it
Canadian photographer David (Davey) Johnson's collection of fireworks photography is a bit different than a typical celebration in the sky. The talented photographer transforms already dazzling fireworks into all kinds of beautifully rare and abstract formations. He explores creative camera techniques to capture the light trails and unusual shapes during various fireworks shows.
Johnson uses 1-2 second long exposures to capture the unpredictable movement and colorful illumination as the explosives burst out against the night sky. He begins out of focus and quickly refocuses his lens when he hears the boom of the fireworks shooting into the air. Johnson says, "You will quickly see how the out-of-focus light refocuses and converges to a small point… creating floating sea creatures in the sky!"
If you want to try out this technique for yourself, Johnson offers a tutorial on his website that explains the process.

What is Color Theory and Why Do I Need to Know It? | Fstoppers | Camera Techique | Scoop.it
Our industries rely heavily on color, which most of us know as a wavelength of light that our eyes and brains perceive as ..well color. But we don’t always think about how or why this is happening. You can go a long way just knowing what looks nice, but if you want to optimize the potential of your finished product, knowing the physics involved is very beneficial.
