Day 331 – Smoke

If I want to get more creative I really need some backgrounds and textures … so one of those things that I have been putting off doing is photographing smoke … so that is today’s challenge.

I had a search online – can recommend reading this web site – how to photograph smoke and I experimented in the kitchen. I fashioned a snood out of black sugar paper to direct the flash and to stop it hitting the black card back board and I it really is amazing….

I then took the images a step further and edited some of my favorite smoke effects in photoshop … they are all unique and beautiful.

Smoke patterns are great fun! I am now going to have to think of ways to use these in some creative pieces.
