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!
