Smoke Art

Photographing smoke can be a great alternative to outdoors photography, especially when you’re stuck inside on those cold rainy days. The main ingredients you’ll be needing is a black background, a flash (preferably portable) or a lamp, and a cheap incense stick! Setting this up doesn’t take long, then it is all up to your photographic eye, which will hopefully be tuned after looking at this collection! Many of these photographs have been manipulated in some way in Photoshop, so after you’ve gathered a couple of excellent shots have a go at post-processing them. The method of inverting and recolouring the smoke is a big theme across all of them!
