Blowing Smoke

Put this in your burning bulb & smoke it: Graham Jefferey has created a gallery of gorgeous smoke images. (In case you’re wondering, as my wife was, whether it’s possible to buy prints, the answer is yes.)  Graham’s work inspired Myla Kent to create her own lovely experiments with incense.  There’s a whole pool of art smoke images on the Flickr, and now Photocritic features tips & tricks from Graham for creating your own smoke images.

    You could make everyone happy and use these for your brand identity!

    Looks like someone had a waterbong and a little too much time on their hands. JK, those pictures are great.
    Thanks,

    They’re very nice, but look like variations of shots done on Chromasia a while back. The ‘problem’ with the web is once someone comes up with an interesting idea, it becomes done to death and sadly one gets sick of it quite quickly. The fact there is a flicker group with lots of people doing pretty but indistinguishable work diminishes the appeal even quicker, for me anyhow.
    [Yeah, it’s funny how human beings work. We value what’s rare. Breathing is a completely phenomenal process, but we hardly give it a second thought, because it’s common. We celebrate athletes who can run 0.1 second faster than others. Scarcity drives perceived value. –J.]
