Smoki'n Colors by dukeofspade Smoki'n Colors by dukeofspade
This is one of my most hard work photo ever :)
almost 50% of the equipment used was on trash:fly:
Light: My own bulb, attached to a broken headlight of a car (found on garbage), and the extension wire i found on the ceiling.
Smoke: I rolled an old news paper (found on garbage) in a very tinny stick like (like an incense), then borrowed a lighter to a friend.
Background: my old black T-shirt.
Stands: a carton box for the main light, a rusted sardines can for the rolled paper, a disposable with cup used as stand of the glass (all from garbage and i cleaned it up :D)
And my camera and tripod :)
The shots was taken in an abandon room, while i'm sited on a floor :) It's clean :)

Thank you so much for all the :+fav:, comments and for the Award :) DD was one of my dream :)

Love lots :D

Bold, Bright and Beautifully executed are the only words to describe this incredibly piece of abstract art! Photography -> Abstract

Okay first off I wanna say that you did an amazing job with the smoke. and the idea is very clever, well thought out.
The overall image looks awesome, but I wouldn't have put the black border. I feel like it distracts and takes away from the photo.

I wish that the reflection of the glassware was a bit more clear and that there were a bit more extra space under the reflection. I'm personally not a fan of tight cropping.

in terms of originality I've seen others do the same concept before, however again your skills in photoshop are noticeably incredible.

I'd like to see a few more shots, maybe different angles and perhaps instead of a simple plain straight row, maybe experiment with the placement of the glassware.

It's still very great work, you did an amazing job, and I love how colorful it is. Excellent work, keep it up! :)
