This is just awesome flainez. I am curious how you're going to pull off a picture with Milla Jovovich on Friday. If you did that you'd be the super king of all time.

flainez says:
To all the people asking about Milla Jovovich or the fifth element... you will have to stay tuned until Friday! Just don't get your hopes to high, ok? :)

@michaeljstraub I know, representing air with smoke is far from ideal, but I tried another alternatives without good results. As a side effect, my home is smelling to incense A LOT!!!

Crazy good. How you stay so still for 25 seconds is the amazing part!

flainez says:
Thanks everybody for giving me a third crown, it is exactly three more crowns than the ones I was expecting to get when beginning whiskerino!!!!

@Noelix, no, in fact I started out of the frame, with the camera pointing at the incense smoke, in total darkness. Then I shoot the flash 4 times always in perpendicular direction from the camera an pointing to the smoke. The shots were 2 from the left (high and low) and 2 from the right (high and low). The flash was set to the maximum zoom (42mm), probably by setting it to the widest one I could have reduced the number of triggers to just two (left and right only) but I was worried about light hitting directly the lens.

Finally, after the 4 flash triggers, I moved to the center of the frame and shot another flash to my face, so no risk of blurriness. 25 seconds were needed because of the recycle times of the flash.

The color comes from the flash gel and the backdrop was a black cloth.
