best ciggy photos - small

I spent my afternoon crouched in gutters in the city, receiving weird looks from people passing by. It was great fun! I attended a workshop with Three Little Wishes Photography where I learned all about how to use a DSLR camera correctly using the manual settings. For part of the workshop we had to choose a theme for what we were going to photograph and spend an hour roaming around Queen Street experimenting with our cameras. I started out photographing textures, then found a cigarette butt sticking out of a beautiful brick wall – I became fixated with cigarette butts for the next hour. My favourite image was a white Malboro butt with lipstick on the end. Thank you to our wonderful tutors for teaching us so well.
