Color and Smoke III - Dance

Piece description from the artist

"I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing than to teach ten thousand stars how not to dance"
— e.e. cummings

The third in a series, this is two different photographs combined into one image. I love how the two seem to be embracing, as if dancing. As before, the smoke was shot over a black background with the image inverted and colorized in Photoshop.

I've had a lot of fun shooting smoke the last few days. I've been using some cheap incense to create the stuff and now my office smells like a new age smoke shop. Oh, the things we do to get the shot.

About Scott Norris

Milwaukee, WI

Emotion. Mood. Feelings. This is what I capture through my photographs. Whether it is landscapes, architectural elements, still life, or macros – it is a very personal journey as my own fears, triumphs, beliefs, and shortcomings are exposed with each photo.
Much of what I shoot is done spontaneously without preconceived thought or plan. I let what is around me dictate what is photographed.
And the shooting is only the first step – a jumping off point. I take the raw images and create what I see in my mind’s eye. Coaxing out textures present in the shot – sometimes adding them. Enhancing the contrast of light and dark to create the mood and emotions I felt and feel. In the end, it’s all about listening to my heart and mind and creating a visual representation of what I feel the moment the shutter is released.
I'm a native Texan currently living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my lovely wife and son.
