Don't get me wrong, I don't care if people smoke.. I don't though and this photo really was just because that idea jumped to my mind. No offense to anyone
Very long exposure (I think 15s), and for the "smoke" above the apple I used a string that I dangled with the light (flashlight). Hope that makes sense-in other words this is what I shot with my camera(no added effects).
In Lightroom I changed the; Exposure +0.3, Contrast -15, clarity +40
Why I called this "smoking kills"? It was a spontaneous idea. I envisioned the apple representing life/health (an apple a day keeps the doctor away
), the knife kills-represents death, and the smoke-well it's the smoking part.
What do you think about it? Does it make sense?
