Shot with two flashes and coloured gels.
Thanks for looking.


Weightless falls
Honeysuckle
Strangers - strange this
Lights from pages
Paper thin thing

Protected by the naked eye
Pearly sunrise

Nearly worn
Kneeling like a supplicant
Darkened skin
Afraid to see
Radiate
Open lips
Keep smiling for me

Weightless cool

Fair skin - freckles
Uncut teeth
Tranquill eyes
Bite my lips - bite my lips
Under your feet

awesome photo. May I ask how you were able to get this photo? And how long did it take for you to get this picture just right? This is a very unique idea. It almost looks too real! (in a good way)

I've put backstage photos links to artist's comment, you can look from there. Whole shooting session took about 1 hour i think.

Many thanks.

May I ask what you find burns best and also if you move the smoke artificially in some way (i.e. move the "stick") or is it just random turbulence?

I used incense and it's great for making smoke. First i tried to give it a shape by using a hairdryer or twirling stick etc. but they didn't work. They just scattered the smoke more. I waited and just pressed, it's random.

Hm... thanks, one more question - is that the 50mm macro from Canon or are you using a "regular" 50mm? I'm always thinking maybe I should use a macro lens for this kind of photo, but maybe it's not necessary :)

Hey, great picture. I tried myself at a smoke picture and it was pretty hard to place the flashlights "correctly". May I ask where you placed the flash in this picture?

I can't believe what I'm seeing...I've spent almost an hour yesterday trying to do something like that...And no way!!!! I thought it was impossible to focus the smoke hahaha then I thougt that the problem was the lighting...a reading lamp and a floor lamp hahahaha not enough...and now YOU DO THAT!!! HAHAHA Your camera is the same as mine...please, tell me more about the lighting...only the two flashes?Pleaseeeeeeeeee!!!
