Now I’m really trying to have fun with smoke!

Like most photographers, I am always looking for that unique perspective or “special something” in an image. My aim is to entice the viewer to look at the details to become aware of the color and form of the subject. Even when using textures to enhance a photo, the viewer is drawn in and the subject maintains its focus and importance.

    Nice composition, effectively the smoke look like having some fun too, not surprise with vodka… congratulations for your feature

  • Thanks Joel! I really appreciate your comments. The whole smoke thing was a challenge I presented to myself, and a photography mentor/friend suggested trying with the bottle.
