Sometimes the unplanned just works itself out… A few years ago I bought a fog machine knowing it would make for some good art, at some point, but never really used it. I set it up against a black wall with a snoot speedlight just above it to catch the smoke. I had no other plans until I saw part of a dead plant I had picked in the garden a year beforehand – again thinking “this will make good art someday”. I held the plant at the smoke and made this image. It was actually shot as a horizontal and rotated 90 degrees in post for effect… I see it as some kind of ritual.
