Chinese New Year Captured By DSLRs

2011: The Year of the Rabbit from Jonah Kessel on Vimeo.

DLSR News Shooter posted a beautiful video from Chinese New Year in Beijing. Using a Canon 7D and a 5D mark II, Jonah Kessel and friends captured the amazing holiday firework displays from the small firecrackers to the monstrous palm explosions around town.

I really dig how they used the bokeh effect for the fireworks. It gives such a strange and compelling image. Really cool use of light and darkness.
