A friend and fellow graphic designer has begun a project on her blog, revolving around a smoke theme. In order to promote creative thinking, she has invited other to join her on this project and submit their own contributions to the theme. I have decided that I want to actually photograph smoke as my piece.

These are just some of my practice shots, to figure out the technical side of things. When the real project is done, it will be properly lit, and have a proper smooth background, but for now, I think I've at least worked out the kinks. My initial thoughts on how to do it were only half right. I've since learned what to correct, so we'll see how the final project turns out.
