Chirs, fresh back form his sabbatical, stopped by to run the theme machine. Mwa ha hah aha ha ha ha! It really belched out some smoke this week smoking up a storm. Mwa ha hah aha ha ha ha! Through the smoking glass we managed to discern that this weeks theme is:

“Smoke Photography”

Last weeks theme of shadow and this weeks theme of smoke fit in nicely coming into Halloween weekend. Mwa ha hah aha ha ha ha! (overused?) This theme can be easy to do or just drive you completely MAD. Mwa ha hah aha ha ha ha! MWA HA HAH AHA HA HA HA!!. Smoke photography in general is photographing smoke. This doesn’t have to be fire it can smoke like a vapor or dust from earth, wind or water.  A quick image search shows many possibilities(most of which have been modified in Photoshop or like program) I used it once in another blog Silhouettes. To photograph smoke it is best to have a good smoke source like insense, a strong directional light from the side with no other light source on in the room, black as you can get background helps. The smoke you see should be enough to allow autofocus to work most of the time. Take many many photos as not all of them are going to turn out. It is always left up to your interpretation of theme so it could be anything related to smoke. You subimit it I’ll post it. Mwa ha hah aha ha ha ha!
