smoke

Lightroom Experiments: Fire & Smoke.

IMG_4829-2 IMG_4829Tried to use what the shot offered here. The column of bokeh in the background looked like a column of smoke to me so I worked around that.

Anyway, this was 2 years ago, out and about in Leicester with Photography Society peeps, same day as the ladybird, market and cat-in-window shot and probably the next couple of “Chronicles” posts.

These old cars were parked outside City Rooms and this lady was smoking by the entrance. Her outfit and the cigarette really fit the car aesthetic so we asked her to not so much pose but just smoke closer to the cars. She let us take some shots and who knows, maybe she’s reading this…
