German photographer Thomas Herbrich’s gorgeous smoke photographs aren’t just works of art, they’re testaments to his extraordinary dedication to his art. It took Herbrich 3 months and 100,000 photos until he had just 20 that he considered worth showing to the world.
When Herbrich set out to create these photos, he underestimated how quickly smoke moves; “The rising of cigarette-smoke is actually so quick that conventional flash equipment is too slow, as is the photographer,” Herbrich explained to Petapixel. “Only a few milliseconds pass between recognition of the subject and the taking of the shot, a length of time in which the smoke has already changed again.”
To achieve the shots, Herbrich had to use camera flash speeds of 1/10000 or faster, capturing thousands of images to get the few he wanted.

His photographs, to be published in his new book “Fan Ho: A Hong Kong Memoir“, reach back through time and space to connect us to the everyday sights of this bustling metropolis in a way that many of us have never seen before.
Ever since Ho moved to Hong Kong from Shanghai in 1949, he has been documenting these special everyday moments. But the challenges (and superstitions) he faced then were quite different from those faced by photographers today; “With a knife in his hand, a pig butcher said he would chop me. He wanted his spirit back,” Ho told the South China Morning Post. ‘
