Additional Notes

"DIYPhotography"

Thumbelina themed shoot.

I used the same lighting on the mushrooms/model, I went for a simple light setup, my aim was to have a blueish rim light to imitate the moon and the rest was just fill for details.

The mushrooms were sitting on a slim baking tray filled with water and the smoke came from incense sticks.. I captured the smoke in a cold glass (just out the freezer) to cool the smoke so it would sit on the water.
