Long exposure nighttime shoots are becoming more and more popular among young photographers lately and Gurbir Grewal demonstrates why. The beauty that can be captured is simply unrivaled; in fact, it can even be described as magical. Especially in Gurbir Grewal's case. As though capturing a sorcerer at work, Gurbir Grewal photographs the colorful streaks that fireworks make when shooting high up into the sky.

Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Gurbir Grewal is originally from a city that banned fireworks. It was with pure delight that he memorialized this Halloween event. As he puts it, "They were essentially spur-of-the-moment photographs. These images came out of some nostalgic memories of Halloween from when I was a kid and Diwali [Festival of Lights] also."
