Smoke Art - Seahorse

Photographing smoke art is one of the most rewarding aspects of home photography. We've all seen the wispy strands that float and glide through the air, but it's not until these trails are frozen in time do we see the true beauty and elegance of their construction.

 

In many images it's possible to see a subject within the smoke.

 

The advantage of smoke art photography is that - compared to water droplets - the patterns take longer to form so it's easier to judge when to take the shot. It's when the scene is viewed on the screen that the true diversity and uniqueness of the patterns is realised.

 

This was processed in Photoshop to highlight the patterns that exist within the formations.

 

The smoke was created by burning an incense stick and the light was a flashgun behind and below at an angle of 45° upwards. The result was processed in Photoshop.
