Experimenting with smoke. A first for me. This is from a series of smoke shots I took in one session. It comprises 16 exposures all combined in PS into one pano. When I saw the images out of camera I immediately wanted to create something with a "ghostly" feeling as I thought they looked like spirits of the dead!
All exposed at 160th sec, f11, ISO 100 at 70mm focal length. I used a slave flash slightly behind and below the smoke and used a home made snoot on my speedlight set at 50% power. With black card at the rear and also a nightlight candle on the floor hopefully to help the smoke form more interesting swirls from the rising heat.
