Day 97 (6 April 2012) Smoke


Every time I blow out a candle, I am mesmerized by the patterns and shapes that the smoke creates as it wafts up from the wick.  Today I grabbed my camera just as I blew one out and took a few shots.  And just for fun, I played with the split toning to see what it would look like in different colors.  A bit different than what I normally do, but it was fun and a learning experience 🙂

I think I would like to do this again more deliberately, with a  cleaner back ground and play with the  shutter speed to see how it comes out.  But for now, I like how these turned out.

  1. I’ve tried it before, and it’s very fun!
    I like them, Jeremy; they turned out really well; I specialy like the second one, the red makes it look very elegant.
    Nicely done!
