The set up- though the flash is not visible, it was directed from above towards background to get the reflected light through the water.

The Smoke....


I had fun taking these incense stick smoke photographs ....there are tons pictures of such smoke photographs on the net so I wanted to try it myself. I have used slim box to direct the flash light on the smoke and avoid it spilling over the black background. It is interesting to see how many nice smoke formations comes out of that little incense stick which we don't observe otherwise....





Here is the set up

This guys has inspired lot of photographers through his work and story of struggled life he went through.
