Pacific coast fireworks at a distance... But with some ICM (intentional camera movement).
Earlier that evening I quickly grabbed the tripod to reposition, but had it mid-exposure at that moment. After finding that accidental result 'interesting' I spent a good while trying to balance getting some fireworks (for context) combined with abstract motion. This 30 second exposure is a few seconds steady for that center burst, then deliberately moving the camera for the remaining exposure time. I took probably 40-50 similar shots to get a few where the mixture felt compelling.
I had done ICM + compositing in the past, but this was an attempt to get that duality feel in a single shot.
(Besides compositing, any suggestions to get better shots like this in the future are much appreciated. TIA.)
