In the studio today regarding something completely different but wanted to capture some smoke shots for a potential image I’m thinking about.

Having completed the shoot I simply inverted one of the smoke shots to create a “Dark figure against a light background” and obviously in it’s original from the reverse.

Arty enough to stop head banging on desk, doubt it but I like it anyway.


Created with just one incense stick and single flash.

This next image was taken whilst using 3 incense sticks later in the shoot to show the setup. You can see the single flash unit with barn doors attached.


100mm macro, f/8, 1/125th sec & ISO 100

Another image from the 3 stick trial being Light on a dark background potential.



50mm, f/8, 1/125th and ISO 100
