Smoked Kipper

By Philip Field ARPS

This shot was taken as part of a shoot for Ritchie's of Rothesay smokehouse on the Isle of Bute. To achieve the shot, I worked with the local smoker in the smokehouse itself. The kipper was hung from a smoking rack and a small pile of sawdust then lit underneath. I set two soft box strobes on each side of the fish (left 1/2 power, right 1/16) and as the smoke began to rise, I asked the smoker to lower the fish into the path of the smoke so I could capture the atmospheric smoke trail.
