Spent a happy 2 hours reshooting and having fun with smoke art.
Reshoot as I’d lost 2 shoots when my disk went “boom!” some time back – this was one of them. Been meaning to get this done – just that it gets really stuffy with joss sticks!

    amazing! the thick curly smoke looks so massive in this shot. wondering how you did this…

  • Thanks so much Peter. Sat back and observed where most of the ‘action’ was happening in the smoke plumage – then zoomed in there and fired away. As to the how – there are a number of tutorials on smoke-art .. I’d read one online and used it as a guideline (I could try and dig it out if you wanted).

    So pretty! Looks like the head of a guitar or violin.

  • That’s EXACTLY what I thought when I first saw this formation – then proceeded to shoot over 30 pics before I got one that I liked – this one!

    Great work Vikram, love the post processed inverted image and colours. I did some and ended up leaving them plain white on black, but love this. Yes, I stank the place out with joss sticks too, lol :)

  • Thanks a lot Pete – felt this needed a little something more. LOL – I’m still getting dirty looks at home because the smell is still lingering 24hrs down the line.

    Amazing form this stuff takes….another ‘must do’….when I get time! It seems work keeps interfering with that. Love the shape of this one, Vikram.

  • Definitely a must do Wendi!
    Thank you so much!
