Smoke Photography: A Trial

When exam preparations keep you locked down in you room, and when you are a photography fanatic, you can’t just sit still. That’s when you need to create your own little studio setup and get going. At least that’s what I did. I have been surfing internet for quite a long time and learned a lot about smoke photography to be honest. I don’t want to sound like I’m bragging. But it’s true. All these theories they have in the internet. What helped me a lot was this tutorial in Digital Photography School. The photograph they showcased are beyond my reach. They are dreamy and surreal and funny.

But I tried, without an external flash. I used a black cloth as a back drop and an Emergency Light consisted of 36 tiny LEDs.

Here are some photographs (I will write a much detailed post about how I clicked them, the setup and all)
