You know you want one of these?
« on: November 21, 2010, 04:26:42 PM »
You know you want one of these but didn't know you did. Fog or Snow machines. Just imagin what you could do with your photo shoots. No need to wait for the right weather to be provided by nature. Just plug these in and away you go.  :tup: :2funny: :2funny:

I spotted these in Maplin's store in Birmingham yesterday.  ;D

  By the way.
                     Do they do one of those inflatable rocks for foreground interest?.......And maybe a roll up "Jetty" to help me with my lead in lines!

Check out this video 6 seconds in.  http://photography-thedarkart.blogspot.com/2010/11/teaser-from-zebra-shoot-latest-from.html

Using a smoke machine is amazing but also incredibly hard work.  I know.  That's me holding it.... ;)

Oh and yes.  That's a real zebra.

We used to have a smoke machine as part of our show rig - horrid things - the chemicals make your throat really tight. Not good for singers.

The yoof round here put washing up liquid in the fountains. Doesn't make them especially creamy, more sort of white and foamy.

I tried smoke bombs from a joke shop last year, how did they work I hear you ask , well the fact that they were sold by a joke shop s a clue. To be fair they were intended for home use.
Hi, "Guest" long time no see, how are you
