I’ve done smoke photography in the past, but never went further than capturing it and converting one image to a decent smoke trail. This time around I wanted to combine different smoke trails in one image. I loved the result so I decided to share the tutorial with you guys!
What you’ll need:
Camera (with pop-up flash activated or a speedlite to capture the elusive smoke)
A large room with a black background, or a black studio box kit if you plan on doing it inside. I did it outside, at night, the smell of the dollar store bought incense was too strong to have it inside. If you plan on shooting outside, choose a night without wind!
