This is a gallery of experimental images where each one is unique and could never be reproduced exactly the same again.  I'm starting off with some smoke patterns but I hope to add bubbles and anything else I can think of.

Smoke    I used a joss stick to create the smoke as I had to have all the doors and windows closed to prevent drafts and if I had to fill the room
with smoke at least it would smell nice!  Lighting was from a single external flash at 90 to the camera and the colours were added later in Photoshop.

Paint    Stirred gold paint in a tin.  I'm not entirely happy with these as the metallic particles in the paint are very
reflective which makes the images appear grainy.  I may have another try with a different technique.
