Graham Jefferey of Sensitive Light
takes miraculous photographs of smoke, like the one seen here. Photocritic interviewed Jefferey about how he captures the perfect frame before it vanishes in a puff.
From the article:
“In my opinion,” explains Graham, “the key technical factor is to adequately light the smoke so that it stands out from the background.”
While smoke in itself can be an interesting subject matter, Graham points out that in his photos, the smoke itself isn’t the subject matter, it is merely the tool used to create unusual photographs: “I am not trying to create pictures of smoke; I am trying to create pictures by using smoke”.
