I wanted to capture the feeling of looking up into the sky at fireworks on a hot summer’s night. I also wanted to include the people who were enjoying them. I got down on the ground behind them with a wide angle lens and balanced the camera on a sweatshirt for a 1.6 second exposure.

Tech Specs: Nikon D800, 24mm f/1.4 lens, 1.6 seconds at ISO 1600
