Is anyone else having issues with the complete lack of smoke from the incense?

Glad it's not just me. Did you get better smoke from the $2 shop version?

I might try that one this afternoon when I have sleeping children. I've roped my bestie into the bubblegum one tomorrow :laugh:

I'm shooting bubblegum today hopefully! I also have a new idea for the eye dropper one. Now I just need to rope someone into letting me do it!

Good luck with the bubblegum one today. Will you share?


So this afternoon I discovered two things:

(1) My bubblegum model can't blow bubbles.
(2) Cheap incense smells like burning twigs, so now my house smells like a campsite.

:)

Ok, I am completely over incense. Blerk.

Troubles:
- Getting a good amount of smoke
- Getting it visible (for the rocket, I had a black back drop with white stars, but the smoke was pretty much invisible against it)
- Getting the smoke in focus
- Getting enough light (I had to bump up the ISO which has made my images noisy)


So here are my finalists:

I'm pretty sure you dont have to use incense, it was just to give smoke. Maybe you can devise your own way of making smoke, just dont burn the house down.
I wanted to get a friend with a cigarette but never got round to it.

I read on the Flickr page that it must be incense (an email someone got from Canon), but I guess if they can't see it, they wouldn't know. Incense has a very distinct type of smoke though. I'm going to try tonight with a long exposure.

I know most people will be working on photo 5 entries this month, so the challenge is inspired by Canon Photo 5

Don't post the images you're actually entering (unless you want to), however you may want to post shots that haven't worked for whatever reason and maybe talk about why you think they haven't worked and what you would like to improve.

For those who don't have a photo 5 box, you can check out the briefs here
http://www1.canon.co.../photo5/briefs/

and for those who want to check out some of the work from last year, there is a little video at this link:
http://www1.canon.co...os/photo5/home/

(if you pause it at 1.01, you see a flash of our very own BlackLabrador wrapped up in bandages. :vomit: )

Photo 5 is fun even if you don't enter. So get creative and enjoy the month.


Hi, I was checking the photo 5, can the confetti be replaced by flower petals?

Cheers :offtopic:

I totally love your smoke ideas huga, really creative :D

okay, I was really struggling, almost gave up on the whole deal, but decided since I'd put some effort into a couple of them, that I may as well enter them 'eh? oh well

this is my macro droplet shot entitled "Dally DNA"

oh, and I've just uploaded this one too :)

the bubble-gum portrait I titled: "Bubblegum kisses"
