Sorry I'm a bit late on tonight's thread. Was having so much fun with the kids this evening I almost forgot to even post it! :D Remembered just now after getting them to bed. Anyway, here we go...

The theme this week is:

SMOKE

That should be an interesting one to try and shoot for. I have an idea what a couple of you might post, and I can't wait to see them if I'm right. I have no idea what I'll try to shoot for this one so I've got some brain rackin' to do... Maybe I can catch a shot of the smoke that comes out of my ears when I think too hard! ::ke:

And again with the formal stuff...

Time frame for taking and submitting your photo is between the posting of this thread and next Monday at 8:00 PM. Photos taken outside that time frame are not eligible for submission to the challenge thread and will be removed. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

i love smoke shots but thought i would try to get out of my realm of comfort for the topic. i really wanted to try to get a pic of the bubble bursting but i liked this one showing the BB bouncing back up out of the bubble trailing the soap solution. the bubble is filled with smoke and i did not realize it was so darn hard to pop a bubble !!!! this is with both sb600s fired remotely from the sides and with the 105 macro lens. black bg and black plate with soap solution. i used a turkey baster to suck up the smoke and blow the bubble.

Wow! Awesome pics. I have a smoky shot in mind....but you guys are at a whole 'nuther level than I am. But then, that's what attracted me to this forum. As we used to say in the Navy....Bravo Zulu.

I gotta wait until this weather breaks for the shot I have in mind.
 
Great shots y'all! Very creative!

Anybody want to share any tips on how to shoot smoke? Do I need a dark room w/ only a flash? Or do I need to use a lamp?:huh: I'm clueless on this one. :O

Smoke

I found out tonight that smoke photography is hard to do. I will keep trying, but next time in the garage. I filled the house up with the smell of incense.

And it lingers a while! You got a great shot though!

Well this the best that I got. I should try setting up the "dark room" thingy like y'all suggested. Anyways....I was cookin' up a pizza on the ol' Weber and took advantage of the opportunity to try capturing some of the smoke.
