July 2013 Photo Challenge: Fireworks

Fireworks are inescapable during the month of July and that's the way it should be. So, you might as well take advantage of the lights as they streak across the sky and capture them with your camera.

This month in the magazine, David Johnson shared his creative technique using focus blur, but we want you to get creative. A portrait with a backdrop of fireworks? Sounds great. An abstract shot that merely suggests fireworks? Great. Whatever you can come up with, we want to see it.

One winner from the challenge will get $100 and their photo published in a future issue of Popular Photography. Entery by August 1st, 2013
