I was truly experimenting when I created this image. I was taken by how beautiful vapor is as it swirls through the air. And I wanted to pair it with some wildly colored bokeh. I used my tripod to capture myself, the vapor swirls, and the background bokeh. Then I photographed my hair separately to add into the image for framing. I was aiming to achieve the majority of the image in camera without the use of Photoshop. I knew that would be a challenge for me and would push my limits. And after a lot of trial and error, I feel as if I succeeded.
