365:072 Smoke

365:072 Smoke, originally uploaded by planetmithi.

Part of my reasons for doing the 365 project was also to learn about the technical side of photography and the things that you can do with it, rather than just the artistic side, ie composition, cropping etc.

When I'd got to the end of the rainy day and still hadn't gotten a decent photo; Sunshine suggested spending a bit of time experimenting with smoke and lighting ... and this is what we got!

Such fun! And I learnt a lot about backgrounds and how to use flashes; and its always great to work collaboratively with Sunshine :)

Here's his version of the shot (inverted in photoshop).
