p.1 #1 · Smoke Sculpturing


Here is a simple house project I've been working on for a while now. I wanted to capture smoke sculptures for which I use incense sticks. I illuminated them with the flash triggered remotely. Flash was pointing up and standing directly below the sticks. That's it. Simple, fun and very inexpensive. I think I paid for 90 sticks around $3.
I like the effect and colors...

I have never seen such a diverse array of colors in a smoke shot. Very nice.

The sharp lines in the smoke are an interesting surprise.

Very cool project, although I think that my wife would move me into the shop with it.

Greg, I love it, but I think a crop off the bottom would balance this comp a bit more and emphasize the upper area of most interest.

Good stuff. I've seen shots like this and wanted to try myself. Now that I know it's incense sticks, I know where to start. Thanks!

If you wave your hands about or ping the incense sticks so they vibrate you get nice swirls too.
Hours and hours of fun :-)
