Behind the Scenes: How to Safely Incorporate Smoke Bombs in Your Wedding Photos

Now that you’re intrigued by smoke-bomb wedding photos, let’s talk about how to incorporate them safely into your wedding photography. Safety is a top priority, and it’s essential to work with an experienced photographer who knows the ins and outs of smoke bomb photography.

  1. Choose the Right Colors: Smoke bombs come in various colours, allowing you to match them to your wedding theme or your personal preferences. Please discuss your colour choices with your photographer to ensure they align with your vision.

  2. Plan: Timing is crucial when using smoke bombs. Your photographer must plan the shots carefully, considering the wind direction and lighting conditions. This level of preparation ensures that your photos turn out perfectly.

  3. Stay Safe: Safety should never be compromised. Smoke bombs can emit heat, so handling them with care is essential. Your photographer should be knowledgeable about safe handling and take all necessary precautions to protect everyone involved.

  4. Communication is Key: Collaborate closely with your photographer. Share your ideas and expectations so that they can incorporate smoke bomb shots seamlessly into your wedding day schedule. I want you to know that effective communication ensures the results align with your vision.

How do you use smoke bombs for the best result?

Of course, as with all visual works, the result remains subjective. But some tricks and practices can be followed to create pictures with an extraordinary atmosphere. But most importantly, always enjoy it! This is the first and most crucial advice for whoever would like to include smoke bombs on their wedding day or your engagement photoshoot.

Another vital piece of advice is to decide before the photo shoot whether to place it on the ground as a background decoration or hold it in your hand to convey the mood and give your photos that special feeling. If you decide on the place of it, then it’s time to think about how it will pop. You can reach interesting, exciting results by, for example, placing it against a dark background. At the same time, we gain a completely different effect if we light it from behind.

One thing to pay attention to when placing it is not to put it in a neutral place, as it will lose the character that makes it stand out.

Another piece of advice is that if you don’t feel it is compelling enough, use more smoke bombs, but be sure to pay attention to the pairing of colours because if you use too many colours back nd forth, you can achieve the opposite effect from what you want.

Do smoke bombs stain?

Yes, unfortunately, they can. So it is recommended to try the chosen smoke bomb before the big day and not wear your wedding dress. If it is 2-3 feet away from you and you only use it in the background, it is not likely that it will leave a mark, but it is better to test it anyway, especially if we decide that you want pictures where you are holding it in your hands. It’s also important that in some cases, small fires may occur during combustion, burning pieces that pop out, so you need to be careful when using them.

How long do smoke bombs last?

In most cases, since you only have to pull a wire, you don’t need a lighter, which is more advantageous from a safety point of view. Of course, there are also those types that you can light with a lighter, but you have to be much more careful not to burn yourself or your clothes. They usually last 60-90 seconds, but it’s worth noting that pulling the wire takes about 10 seconds to reach full strength. 

From the point of view of photography, it is essential to prepare in advance for the suitable composition, who to pose and where. From then on, it’s all about fun and finding the best moments.
