Long exposure photographs of waterfalls never fail to impress us. Hengki Koentjoro shot this masterpiece while traveling in Indonesia!
Around the Clear Science Labs Friday is the day for putting on our bell bottoms and backing up the computers. Have a good weekend.
Photographer David Johnson shot these flower-esque photos of fireworks!
If you’re wondering how, The Atlantic went ahead and asked him! Here’s what he said:
The way I captured the photos was actually pretty simple… it just required good timing. Having the camera in Bulb mode (exposure is as long as I hold down the shutter) was key.
I put the camera out of focus and would start an exposure when I could see the fireworks going up. Once they exploded, I quickly refocused the camera.
This created an effect of blobbed/out of focus light that slowly converges into fine points. Makes a regular explosion look like a deep sea creature!
