I'm not a big fan of this type of art personally, but I do like #2. I think the colors and the way you mirrored the smoke work really well!
Im a huge fan!! how have you done this? is there much photoshopping done to it?
I love all of them, but the last ones my favourite.
The first and the last weren't really PP'd at all except for a little bit of sharpening and contrast. The second one took me about ten minutes, I just saturated the highlights and shadows with different colors and then mirrored the images and put them together. I love smoke art, it's so different every time you do it!
Very cool! I like the last one. I totaly see the head of a duck in the top left of it! lol All of the little swirls and all. Its amazing what happens when you stop life for a split second. Just as cool as water drops and much easier! Tho the first one looks out of focus on my screen. As the second is neat it doesnt do a lot for me.
Did you do this in a studio? what was your setup? (lights, background)
That thread has my set up in it. The first one looks out of focus a little to me as well. That is the hardest part for me is getting the focus because the smoke is ALWAYS changing.
Since you're at f/11, set a solid object where the smoke will be, light it, and set your focus on that. You can even AF and then just switch AF off.
That is why I was setting the F-Stop as high as I could, so that more will be in focus. I tried with a stationary object but the smoke kept coming closer and then moving further, it was annoying to say the least!
Thanks , intresting!
