Check The Location

Planning an Event?


  1. One of the main and most important aspects of using such an element in your pictures is being sure about the venue and the location you are planning to choose. 
  2. It is very important to make sure that your location for getting clicked is some outdoor setting, as setting indoor locations is not a great idea because it may cause inhalation of too much smoke resulting into irritation in your eyes and throat. 
  3. Before planning and executing make sure that you choose a venue that gives permission to use smoke bombs on their property. It is noticed that smoke bombs leave behind residue and can leave a stain, that takes quite a time to go away. 

Keep it at a Distance

Remember about one thing that smoke bombs can leave a stain on your outfits. It is best to be careful enough when you’re working with the smoke bombs as you don’t want your designer outfit stained with dots of vibrant colours that may not even come off. It is also noticed before that smoke bombs if inhaled by mistake can cause irritation. So, it is most advisable to use smoke bombs in the backdrop of your photographs, or if you want a picture holding the smoke grenade, then make sure you are not holding it too close. 

Be Sure About the Weather Conditions 

It is our advice to check the weather conditions before you get a smoke bomb picture clicked as setting off a smoke bomb on a dry and humid day can be harmful and dangerous. Similarly, it’s useless to use a smoke bomb on a rainy day. Its is better to use cool burn, flameless smoke bombs instead. 

Talk to Your Photographer in Advance

The main thing is, taking the pictures with smoke bombs requires special skills and types of equipment as well.
