Tim Tadder's 'Bella Umbrella' series uses colorful smoke, vintage umbrellas and vibrant outfits to create colorful masterpieces.

In the 'Bella Umbrella' series the outfits of the models perfectly match the color of the vintage umbrella they hold. Tadder paired colors that would make both the outfits and the smoke really pop against the black backdrop. The thick clouds of smoke shroud all the models in mystery, as only their forms can be seen while their identities remain hidden from the viewer.

The colored smoke used in 'Bella Umbrella' is the same type used for demonstrations and in the military. In one of the shots it is possible to see the model wearing an old fashioned gas mask.
