A day full of excitement and failure :)

 

Few photos of smoke.I couldn't get the settings right so I used auto settings for it and it came out quite blurry and bad.I didn't use flash cus it made the whole background bright and the colours n stuff came out.I believe that I should have used flash but atm I don't have any black backgrounds :'/

I was going to make it curvy but I didn't have the right paper for it and now I've got those side screens attached.It's quite annoying to change the paper in the middle bu I'll give a try :) Thank you for explaining why's the curvy one better :)

 

 

 

- kk :D It was so much easier than I thought.Now I've successfully installed the curvy paper on it.No idea what I'm going to do with it but still I had lots of fun making it :)

That would be awkward.

Yes, use flash for the smoke, but use it as backlighting.

What you mean by backlighting?How do I do that?Sorry, I'm not sure if the problem is the lack of my english or lack of my knowledge about photography :)

And does the camera flash do the work or do I need an extra flash?

Backlighting is literally lighting the subject from its back.
You need at least one external flash, which you place behind the smoke and it should flash towards the smoke and lens.
If you have two external flashes, you can also place them to the sides and light the sides of the smoke.
If you use the built-in flash, you'll have light spill on the background, which is not what you want.

Well, studio photography is expensive, indeed.

you can use any kind of lightsource to create backlighting, dunt have to be specifically a external flash. use a table lamp, quite a bit cheaper hehe
