Brown & Red Smoke

Brown & Red Smoke

Smoke photography, lit with a single Vivitar 285HV flash off to camera left at 1/4 power on a black felt background. Manipulated in Photoshop. There's a Gobo (something that goes between the light and the subject, which in this case is the light and the background) to prevent the light from lighting the felt background which would show a lot of texture otherwise.

This is obviously an incense stick placed on an incense stand, hand holding it makes the smoke too wild. Also make sure you breathe away from the smoke and that the air conditioning is off, you want minimal air flow for a few seconds until the smoke settles before you take your shot. Once the smoke is calm you can try different methods to disturb the stream...shaking the stick a bit, blowing on the smoke trail, etc.

The trick to the smoke photography is to light the smoke, not the background, to have a black background and to get the focusing just right. Autofocus will kill you because it will have a hard time focusing on the smoke instead of the background. Try focusing on a plane close to where the smoke should be (you can use a stand in to get started) and then turn off the autofocus.

You can then use Photoshop to get the color effect. I apply a invert layer, then a sharpening pass (convert the layer to a smart filter in CS3 so you can readjust). Then I draw a rectangular shape that covers the whole area, the I go to layer effects and use a gradient overlay, you choose a overlay, screen or other mode to get different color effects.

Once you have the layer sequences on top of the smoke, you can drag them on top of other smoke and essentially adjust your gradient overlay layer.

Fly Agaric Toadstool - Off Camera Flash Tutorial pt2

Fly Agaric Toadstool - Off Camera Flash Tutorial pt2

The next shot I have attached the flash which has a diffuser and a CTO gel to give that warm, sunset type light, I also opened the aperture to f/8 and reduced the shutter to 1/80. So from the last shot the aperture has been opened by 1 stop (f/11 -> f8) and the shutter has closed by 2 stops (1/20 -> 1/40 -> 1/80) so we have reduced the ambient light by 1 stop, however it looks brighter as I’ve zapped it with an external flash gun. The flash output on the 580 was set at 1/4 power and the zoom to 24mm and it was about 2 feet to camera left.

The 2nd shot is a marked improvement and I actually packed up after getting it as I was quite happy with it but I thought what if I wanted to do a light tutorial for the blog, what else could I do? Well I looked at the LCD and thought the background could do with being a little darker to draw more attention to the toadstool (for anyone looking at the out of focus, under exposed grass on the right). Luckily this was a very easy adjustment to make. I could leave the flash how it was as I was happy with the levels on the Fly agaric, but to reduce the background light I just needed to speed up the shutter from 1/80 to 1/200 (about a stop and a half). How come the shroom didn’t get darker you ask? Easy the flash only cares about aperture as the pulse of light is the same if you have the shutter set to 1/200 or 1 second. The toadstool would have got darker if I had pulled the light back further from the subject or lighter if I’d have increased the ISO (this would also effect ambient) but I didn’t.
