Jean Genie

@francoise challenged me to take a potograph inspired by a fairy tale. So here's Alladin's lamp with the genie just emerging.


181 photographs
2 joss sticks (the garage stinks of vanilla)
2 hours (including processing)
PhotoscapeX and Ribbet
Compositing, burning, dodging, sharpenning, (have I mentioned swearing yet?)
It does actaully look a tad more professional if I type BoB!

I am actually quite chuffed with this, but don't mind if I NEVER photograph a joss stick's smelly smoke ever again it was hard work) ( so this is a 4er dogwood, song challenge, crow barred in to composite and get pushed)
Here you go @francoise hope this is sort of what you had in mind??

you could've borrowed a photo of graeme stevens (the one in the corset preferably!) and composited him as your genie. :-D

this is fantastic and so well done with the smoke spirals. I like your composition but i love the lamp! i want one, too!!!! aces!

I love this. For all the reasons listed above, plus the way that the blue reflection on the right balances the fabulous blue smoke on the left. Meets the bill for sure.

@annied thank you!1 I've decided to submit this to camera club for consideration for exhibition!

Awesome. That is truly Alladin’s lamp. My local photo club wants to do light painting while the days are still short. But yours is so much more.
