    Smoky Detour


    Smoky Detour

    Canon 300D , EF 50/1.4 USM, f/2 , 1/500s, ISO 800 , EC -1.3, RAW


    My first attempt at the now-ubiquitous "smoke" photo. Took a few iterations to get the shutter speed fast enough and the background dark enough. For those who haven't seen these shots before, the smoke is shot against a black background, then the photo inverted and colorized to achieve this effect.

    One more fall shot (love the colors reflecting in the water on this one!), run through a virtual "Orton Effect", as described in this post. Gives it an impressionist feel. I'll have to try this technique selectively on some portraits.
