A few from the other day.
The Ugly Sister
Smokey the Ant
These are really cool! Would you mind sharing a bit of information on your technique (e.g. How did you light them, shutter speed info, how much was done in PP, etc.)?
Hi Ian and thanks.
I use a Bowens 250 at the moment at full power
Camera settings are-
f/14- f/16 to make sure I get detail in the drift.
I see an Image in the smoke and them try to make it more clear and obvious (by brushing out areas)to others viewing It. I also sometimes use gels.
I agree, these are really cool! I love them! Very nice work.:thumbup:
Almost looks like stuff I do in Photoshop
Very nice photos. Smokey the Ant is my favorite.
Thanks for your comments. Glad you like them.
Alan, what kind of smoke did you use and how did you create that pitch black and white background??
The smoke is from a scent stick. I used a black background and used a grid with the light to stop any spill onto the background. all I did to create the white background was invert in photoshop. Anymore questions just ask.
Since I am new to photography, could you maybe explain that in easier language because its a project I really would like to do!!
Hi Ben sorry about that. I am not the best to ask on a tutorial as I don't explain myself very well. I have had a look on the web and this Is a very good tutorial from start to finish. You can use an off camera flash wireless, its just as good. If this is of no help let us know and i shall have another look.
Here Is another.
Thanks that really helped, now I am gonna try this project over this week and i will publish the pics later. thanks, i will probably have some questions later
