Day #1409 Title: The Smoke Dragon
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Strobist: 1 x YN560 from camera left with DIY snoot @ 1/32, timed with CameraAxe5 and Microphone Sensor.
Notes: I’ve been playing with fire today. There were several nice shapes which formed from my match experiments. I found a good image for today’s MoNovember shot. But by far the best was this Smoke Dragon who appeared as if from nowhere. Must have been Dai’s doing ;-)
