Hi! Today I'm gonna teach you easiest way to shoot some photograph of smoke within low budget (If you already have equipment , lol)

Example :

All you need is
1. Camera (+ Lens)
- Any camera such as Mirrorless,DSLR or other would be fine just make sure it can control an external flash and manual controll.
2. External Flash
- It's  important that your flash can be wirelessly controlled. any method is OK to use , Otherwise you have way to move it to another location but you can still control it.
- And a sheet of something to controll/block the light
3. Incense or any source of smoke
4. Black Screen or Other color
- Any kind of screen is usable (I'm using cheap black paper). I reccomanded black color
5. Darkroom
- Better that you have ventation in your room. Room must be very dark
6. etc..... for setup your workplace

Let's start! Now setup your rig and tool as you seen in picture
(If you can't see image :…)
- I choose bathroom to did this. Because this room is easiest to manage the light for me and other room is air conditioned, Smoke may kill my air conditioner, :P . It's better to take picture a whole thing and then do a process by program on your PC

(If you can't see image :…)
- Then use a sheet of paper (Or upto you) mount on flash like this. This will prevent light from flash goes to background paper. If you don't block the light from flash it will make background brightly and you won't get a clear shot

(If you can't see image :… ,… )
- Now set your Camera and Flash into manual mode , Use high shutter speed (About 1/80-1/200) with low ISO , Lowest F/Aperture. For flash isn't fixed ( And Camera setting isn't fixed too!) I use 1/100,ISO100,F4 for camera and  Exposer -2,105mm for Ext.Flash. Again any setting isn't fixed, It depend on your room and how are you set it up. Now light the incense and take a shot find the best setting then enjoy :D

*** Tips : You may use any tool and method to change a shape of smoke. ***

- After you finish clear out incense by exstinguish it (Safety first) then do image process by your PC .... and.. DONE!
