    Playing with smoke

    Last night I saw in flickr a nice image of smoke coming a recently blown candle
    I decided to try the concept with a candle, but it wouldn't smoke long enough.

    My wife suggested I used incense :idea:

    Here are a few images from last night, I think it worked all right
    I played with the white balance to make the smoke really blue, except the first picture
    which is a crop of an otherwise SOOC

    Is it OK fo rme to continue uploading my experiments ?
    I'm having a lot of fun with the external flash

    Looks good to me.
    I don't mind you uploading experiments at all.
    Gives me and I'm sure others ideas to think about.
    Keep Shooting!


    Please refrain from editing my photos without asking.

    Try inverting it when it is still white - like a film negative. - TF
    I am no better than you. I critique to teach myself to see.
    Feel free to edit my photos or do anything else that will help me learn.
