Comments(12)- August 9, 2007

Last night I had my first attempt at smoke photography. I ran into a couple problems, mainly with the background. The only black material I could find was my sister's Halloween costume which was semi reflective. Because of this the flash bounced back and my black background was no longer black. Hope you enjoy, plenty more to come as soon as I find a better background.

  • I think it's a well done experiment! More free space on the top could be better? :-)

  • I think you need to get closer for these kind of shots to work.

  • I think it worked. A bit messy on top, but works overall.

  • Although I agree with some of the comments above, I have tried this for myself - and I know that it is bloody hard! Great attempt. I look forward to seeing your next ones.

    I find that the simple designs in the smoke work best.
