Smoke And Mirrors

I'm up to my old tricks--playing with smoke bombs that is. Since summer heralds the season of roadside firework stands and even your local superstores start to carry sparklers I couldn't resist getting a few more smoke bombs to experiment with. A little warning to anyone looking to play with these themselves: they smell completely awful. However, I'm willing to put up with a number of discomforts in order to experiment with photography.

What gorgeous, eerie shots!

Is that a new tattoo? or just a temporary one? (or I guess have I just been not very observant?)

Very cool and experimental. Cute little dress and lovely collar gems. The temp tattoo looks so good on you.

@Dus, thank you! Almost no editing--we shot at dawn so we had soft light and then two different colors of smoke kept coming out--because the smoke from lighting the wick was white/grey and it lingered and then the smoke bombs had their own orange-y color. :)

I love these shots! I really wish smoke bombs (and firecrakers) were legal in Australia but sadly they aren't :(
I saw this the other day and thought of you and your smoke bombs... http://becauseimaddicted.net/2013/08/pop-by-irby-pace.html
