This was my first attempt at Smoke. Very random setup i think! :lol:
Spur of the moment and used what i had to hand also added other things to get a better result.

I will do a better job next time of controling light and using a better background. Easier to PP

Great result as-is, though! I really need to give smoke photography another shot one of these days (as soon as I can get a new black background, that is).

What are the tricks, settings to these shots? Is the room completely dark when shooting and then single strobe?

As long as the strobe is bright enough all of the lights in the room can be on.

I never have the room dark when I shoot smoke, there's no need to. All you need is a black background and a side light. If you take a look at the link in my sig for smoke there's a ton of useful info on how I do it, and different tricks and tips.


Actually, if you go through the first couple of pages in this thread my setup is in there somewhere. My advice is to use the garage if you have one. I do it in my office, but the incense stinks up the house and my wife doesn't care for the smell. Doing it in the garage does a few things...One, it makes your garage, and probably your car, smell pretty. Two, it allows you a lot more room, if you keep the smoke setup farther away from your background you won't have to worry about light spill from the flash hitting the background. It'll also allow you to side-light the smoke so you can get better AF without worrying about the side light causing spill onto the background.


The only stupid question is the one that goes unasked - Photographers shoot to thrill, not to kill

Great tips everyone, thanks a lot. I will have to give it a shot soon! :cool:

Thanks - I doubt it. There are many images floating around. There was a first batch that came around from the preview night, done by two colleagues of mine, that made the rounds on the net. That's probably what you saw. Do you have a link? I looked on there and couldn't find anything.
