Shoot Fireworks Out of Focus for Beautiful Bokeh Explosions

Next time you’re attend a fireworks display, try shooting your photographs or video out of focus. This video by Danny Cooke is a pretty beautiful look at what you can achieve by doing this. What’s more, if you focus on the spectators in the foreground, it looks like they’re watching bokeh fireworks as well!

    It would be cool to do this with some bokeh filters too!
