A few years ago, I discovered an unbelievable smoke photographer, thanks to a former co-worker. In the past I have made a few miserable attempts at smoke photography, and just this week found a trick to it. Before, I simply had a point and shoot (not that I'm going to dog on point and shoots, because some truly fabulous work can come from such cameras) and not enough light. My pictures came out blurry, and grainy, and downright awful. Thanks to mi esposo fabuloso, I am now the proud owner of a Gary Fong Lightsphere. So with my SLR and my lightsphere, I was able to capture spirals and loops of incense.
