Colored Smoke

I was excited to get working on this challenge. What I have here was just some playing around with a candle and I would just blow the candle out. I had a black background and did not use a flash for these. I want to try some more techniques as well in the next few days. I hope some of you will give this a try and post what you come up with.

Strange, I went back and clicked on the second picture and the picture appeared. When I clicked back the picture was posted on your blog!?!?

WHOA!! Those are super cool photos Carin. I was wondering what lense and settings you used? Love them!!!!

Judy, I will try and take some more and tell you all what I did so you too can reproduce it. Basically though, do just as I said in the post. The coloring I did in Elements.

Great pix. I need details: shutter speed, apature, ISO, time of day, inside, outside or underwater, how is it lit (the picture, not the candle)...
