How to use smoke bombs at your wedding.
Ok listen up babes, smoke bombs look cool AF right, and you’ve seen them everywhere and think… YES i need a bit of that. Of course you can have a bit of that, but, let’s get the boring safety bit out the way.
If your photographer isn’t comfortable using them, don’t push them.
A responsible photographer will tell you that they:
a) can burn
b) can stain clothing
c) won’t use them in certain windy or rain conditions
d) will stop the use of them if people aren’t listening to safety briefing.
Now let’s look at how to use smoke bombs at your wedding
Smoke bombs can be held or placed on the ground, they are not be thrown like a grenade because things can end badly. Now i use these in both ways depending on whether you are comfortable holding them or not, for group shots i try to get you to hold them and we create madness, i’m the creator of the bomb battle. Yeah, so loads of photographers have tried to copy, but that’s cool, i’m like the OG and consider myself trend a setter 😀
We can also do them more ‘formal’ where we are just all standing with these in the air.
For portraits i like to place them on the ground (mostly) to create ambience and atmosphere and i’ve done this many many times over the years.
So let me show you some examples of different ways i’ve used them and the different vibes they create.
