Johan - test shot

This is one of the results of testshots during the photoshoot with Johan a week ago. (See my post of October 10th.) Looking for the best light for the smoke-collar-project.

I wanted to take a photograph in old classic style and I wanted the model to 'wear' a medieval collar. But not a regular collar made of fabric, but one made of smoke. I found a way to more or less control rings of smoke. The difficult part was to take a photograph at the exact right moment when the ring of smoke is around the neck of the model.

Thanks to model Johan Bos. Thanks also to my friend Wim Blom as assistent (billowing the smoke around the room.) And thanks to my friends Geert-Jan and Jaap for letting me use their living room for the photoshoot, as I needed a room high enough to let the smoke come down from above the model.
