Smoking Kills by sydnorn Smoking Kills by sydnorn
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 :D), the knife kills-represents death, and the smoke-well it's the smoking part.


What do you think about it? Does it make sense?

I personally don't understand how the symbolism couldn't make sense . . .
