Smoke Photography

If you ever wanted to take photo’s of smoke, the following will explain how to do so.

Before you start there are a few things you need to know. First is the equipment needed and second is the software needed to produce pictures like this. The most important piece of equipment for this application is an external flash. However, the camera being used needs to be able to trigger the flash when the camera takes the picture. If you don’t already have a camera that can control an external flash it will be very difficult to capture this picture. A digital slr works perfectly for this and many situations. There are two main competitors that make these cameras, Canon and Nikon.  A source of smoke is also needed for the pictures, the best smoke producer is an incense stick which can be purchased at your local wal-mart. The second main thing is to obtain Adobe Photoshop which will be used to edit the photos.
