    This is the first picture taken with my new camera; the Canon 40D (Love it!)

    Looking at some smoke pictures from other people got me inspired. This is my take on it.
    I don't have an external flash, so it's kinda tricky getting enough light to hit the smoke (I ended up getting a construction light at Home Depot; 250W Halogen light on sale for $4!). Still testing around how I could get better results. It's a ton of fun....

    If you have suggestions on lighting or other tips it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Great photography on the cheap. :) Excellent photograph but I think you could chop off some of the right side. Beautiful colours.

    Dumb question probably, but what did you use to provide your smoke source?

    Thanks a lot for your comments.

    marcuspeddle: Thanks for your comment. I was thinking of cropping it tighter but decided against it. I like the extra black space to the right. I think it balances the smoke out nicely and also gives it some room to go... Thanks again.

    ernie: Thanks... not yet the other ones didn't turn out that great. Have to try again...

    Chris of Arabia: It's incense sticks. I asked for the "least aggressive" flavor. Cause there ended up to be a lot of smoke... :)

    Joxby: Thanks. I like them a lot. Look like sparkles.

    Method: thanks. I like them too... :)
