Hello,

Here's a short tutorial how to make photo with smoke !
If you want to know how I take my photos : it's easy and I've made a short tuto here : BLOG #29837

1) How it works

I use smoke liquid for smoke machines. It's changing to gaz when you heat it, like all liquids in fact. But here you will get an opaque fog and you don't need a high temperature, a small candle is enough. Also, this smoke is not dangerous.

2) Build the machine

You need :

Candles with metallic frame like the one from Ikea
Jam pot
Smoke liquid for smoke machine
Lighter
Metallic cable

Remove one candle from the metallic frame. Then do 3 pockets all around and put 3 metallic cables like the picture below. It should be stable enough so the frame don't fall down. Try with the candle not lighten before !

Then, light the candle and put in the the jam pot. Put some liquid in the frame, only a small quantity is needed. If you put too much liquid it will not be warm enough and you will not get smoke.

3) Make some photos !

You can use a fan to diffuse the smoke or else, your smoke will go straight.

4) Color

For the color, I've used a LED lamp from Jedi Light with a remote control. The cost is around 50€ for 2 bulbs.

Zestorm (11 maand(en) geleden) #25797008I didn't noticed sticky residue. It tooks me 10 minutes to take the photos and the figure was not inside the smoke, the smoke was in front of the figure.I have my own portable fog machine, my vaping atomizer (e-cigarette), I think the basic components of the "e-juice" are similar to the ones of the smoke fluid, and I haven't noticed any residue yet, but some vapers say it leaves a thin film of residue on non-porous surfaces after vaping for a while in the same area, so I think it should be OK if you don't place the figure inside the fog. I personally don't really think it will affect the figure even if I exhale a cloud all over it and take a picture, but that's my opinion, and of course, I would immediately turn the fan on to blow away the fog (moisture) after that.

I think I'll stick with photoshop, but cool idea nonetheless.
