Today we're playing with incense smoke . Our article and technique will show you how a few sticks of incense and a little time in Photoshop can create some unique abstract images. Once you've had a go at the technique if you're an e2 member you can upload your images here while our free members can upload images into the gallery.

Enjoy!

I'll add the first one. I really enjoyed doing this, and was surprised what good results you can get.

Sadly it's unlikely I'll get any time today to do some smoke ones but they are indeed a great deal easier than people think .....

Once you have smoke you can use it to create additional artistic effects. Here smoke was duplicated and flipped and a half flipped face was added as another layer. And then the face was flipped to create the reflection. I've ended up with something that might suit a new age / ambient project.

I'm taking it that Will did not write the article then as he swore at me after the technique appeared in PM as trying to get good images was frustrating him, he claimed draughts in the studio Wink

He did have a try in the studio and I don't think draughts were a problem this time!

Ah but the epZ studio is obviously better than Will's draughty house for photography Wink

Maybe we could get more people to join in if there was a weekly prize for best linked photo?

I'm gonna have to try these - going out to buy some white background board now - although the black has more impact me thinks. Colin

Colin the background is always black. The white ones are just inverted in PS! Wink

Don't buy white. Just shoot on black and invert to get white in your digital image editing program.
