The good thing about smoke photography is that you really don;t have to do anything after everything is set up. Once I figured out the lighting, background and the focus, I was just clicking away. Now the depth of the smoke depends on where the smoke is coming from. I used couple of incense together to get 2-3 layers of smoke rising. The first time experiment was successful. I got some decent pictures and fun while doing it.
Now this photo of my roommate was taken few days ago and I posted it on Flickr yesterday. surprisingly by last night it became one of my popular photos on flickr. I don’t know how they calculate it but i was surprised. Because I really didn’t like this photo and I wanted to re-shoot this weekend. I find the angle is simple. I wanted more dramatic view of the kicking. May be the next shot will be as I visioned.
Once you get hungry and there’s nothing in the fridge, the stomach just starts growling even more. It happened to be that my freezer is full of frozen stuff. So I get back to work, one hell of a job. cooking is something that I started to enjoy more and more. My mom showed me some recipes but it started heavily with Shafin, my es-roommate. Now it’s becoming a hobby to cook rather that for the sole purpose of feeding myself. Hope to create some exquisite dishes in future that involves no talent of any sort.
