Smoke art photography is a fun art form, due to the random nature of the smoke, you never quite know what you're going to get.
"Hot lips" by Kate Beauchamp took out first place. Kate used incense sticks to create the smoke effect. Three images of smoke were then combined with a still life image of lipsticks to create a striking and professional looking final image.

September Challenge: Members can either choose 'High Key' or 'Low Key' photography. High Key is a term used to describe images that are bright and contain little or no shadow. Low Key, on the other hand, uses mostly dark tones to produce high contrast, dramatic images.
