Another good one from the series....I would like to know how did you manage to create the environment...

@Manubhai: It's actually not that hard, I was surprised by the results as well!! Setup: Nikon D300 with Nikor 70-200 Vr lens, on tripod released with kabelrelease, about 2 meters removed from smoke. External flash (SB-800) remotely activated 30 cm on angle behind smoke. Black background about 30cm behind smoke (incense stick). F11 to keep all smoke in focus and 1/250 = fast enough to freeze the moment. Flash on 1/2 (pretty high). Colour later added with Capture NX2. Manubhai, am looking forward to your try at it!! Let me know if you post it.

Superb series..Inspirational. I tried once without the external flash.. Instead I used some lights I used for product photography.. NO Success.. I will try with a more powerful light sometime..

Waanzinnig mooie rook serie!
