Part of a set from a university project. Redbuble isn’t really the place to show the other photos from the set.
The set was to do with the cannabis culture that plays a large part in many of my peers lives, and – although it is not a subjective reflection on my personal opinions – it highlights what I consider to be the negative effects that smoking cannabis can cause, and a reflection of what was playing on my mind at the time of the project.
This photo stood out from the rest of the set, as it is the only still life (although I doubt it could be classed as still life, due to the nature in which it was created). The ‘smoke’ in the picture was created by using a long exposure (around 4 seconds I think), and waving my hands around above the ashtray. I kept my rings on so the highlights from them would be a tell tale sign of what they really were.
The image is meant to be a negative reflection on the priorities of a heavy smoker.
They have become the smoke.
They take pleasure in the act, not the effects.
They aren’t happy.
They are only interested in the smoke.
But thats not why its here. Its here because it looks pretty cool.
