  • These were taken last night. I'm working late tonight and I won't have time to make a post so I'm doing it now . I lucked out and was able to get some of the moon low on the horizon.
    The city shot is of Salt Lake city from across the Great Salt Lake. If you enlarge the photo you can see planes taking off from the airport.

    this is a beautiful series Chad, i have to submit my "wow" on the second one.

    this is how i did the smoke shot.
    in addition to a camera, i also used:
    -off camera flash
    -incense stick
    -black background
    -2 pcs of black card

    my camera settings:

    -exposure mode-manual
    -shutter speed-1/200
    -focal length- 48mm

    you can see my hardware setup here and the speedlight setup here

    note: i think the key here is the 2 pcs of black cardboard that must be
    attached to both sides of the speedlight to prevent light from falling on the background, btw the image must be taken in a dark room or at night with no or with minimal light.

    >PP: it you just want to change the colour of the smoke, just adjust the hue level.

    for the rainbow coloured smoke, on another layer I used the gradient tool with rainbow colour, soft light blending mode, flatten, and inverting the tone image to get the white background.

    Wonderful shots chad. I absolutely love the second shot. I took some crescent moon shots recently, but they can't hold a candle to this.

    I know you were excited when you were heading out to get these and they certainly worked out for you. Great job.
