Photographing “Smoke” can be done easily with a little bit of preparation. There are several movies on “Youtube” that give you plenty of instructions how to do it, for example Gavin Hoew’s (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2d281_HoEQ).
I played around with matches and I was happy with this image. This is a fun exercise. With a little bit of try and error you will get some great images!
