D-72 Following the smoke trail & Portraits by request

Smoke project
The smoke is from an incense the color is from a gel that I put on a speed light, which is the only lighting used in these images.
Smoke trail


Dave sees the figure of a woman with a hat on this one. Do you see it?

Light to the camera left with a red gel.
Nikon D-300, 50MM lens, ISO 500, 1/100S @ F/5.6

Just learning this was my first attempt.
Dave saw how the images were turning out and he's always wanted a portrait with that type of lighting so we experimented some more
and he really loves these. Jan, the first one's for you

Lighting for these is
Nikon D300, F/14, 1/80s, ISO 500, 50MM

Pages Read in the Nikon Digital field guide: 147-154 Lights and light modifiers.
