The Vapors series began as a studio experiment to combine the use of strobes with my interest in photographing objects in motion. I thought the unexpected movements of smoke would be an interesting subject. I became fascinated with the playful, sinuous shapes that appeared, only revealing themselves when I would sit down to edit the shoot. I add the colors during post processing and have begun to experiment with combining multiple exposures. I often show this work with my figurative studies as I find many of the shapes the smoke assumes unexpectedly mirror the human form.
