Twisted by diado Twisted by diado
Smoke photography.

Shot with a side-on speedlight with blue and red gels attached - the colours aren't added in photoshop (except for to the watermark, of course ;-) )

Inspired by the awesome *AdamShepherd and his wonderful smoke shots. I thoroughly recommend his smoke photography tutorial as well, although I didn't actually use it for my shots because I forgot about it :doh:. Having said that, I did actually end up using pretty similar techniques.

RAW conversion and slight post-processing in Photoshop CS3.

It looks amazing, much like a woman blowing a kiss to me. Beautiful colors, too. I have always enjoyed smoke photography (I might try it one day).

Lovely simplicity on this. I can see now the curves / body contour of a woman abstract with a blowkiss. Bit seductive. Great work friend. :D

That's really impressive.
On first sight i guessed you put an color gradient layer above a CG image of smoke.
But this whole thing being a photography...impressive =)
