R. Scott Elgram Photography | A Study in Smoke | Photo 1


I got the idea from a good friend. I'm a big fan of high contrast photography and this was a good project for it. The beautiful lines and swirls were an aspect that I didn't think of or expect.
Photography is, in many respects, an art form of capturing moments. Pictures like this capture a moment that exists pretty much outside of normal human experience. The gorgeous swirls and beautiful lines were fleeting moments destroyed by their own momentum. These images server to show us the beauty contained within that single fleeting moment.
