Smokebombs from Coloured Smoke - purchased CS-18g 5 packed MIXED (1x: Red, yellow, green, blue, orange)
Location: Lennox Bridge, Glenbrook NSW Australia

A few months before our wedding, I approached the talented Clarissa from Clarzzique Photography and Videography to discuss using coloured smoke bombs for our pre-wedding photos.
With both parties never using smoke bombs before, I think the photos turned out beautifully!

We went and lit the first smokebomb and just went with it. We soon realized we only had about five minutes or so before the smoke bomb completely sizzled out. Luckily we asked Lisa and Flora to help fan the coloured smoke to try and control the direction. We also ran around trying to get our poses in and to move out if the smoke became too much. There was alot of yelling from Clarissa to move positions if she saw the smoke was immersing us and yells from Lisa asking if she should fan more or less. It was pretty funny.

There was a moment when we had lit the yellow smoke bomb and the smoke traveled well above the bridge where cars passed by. Two people stopped their cars to peer down to yell out if we were ok. I think one person even pulled out their phone to take a quick photo. Luckily they left after we yelled out "we're good!".

Sp here are a few tips for anyone out there trying out Smokebomb Photography:

1. Bring a friend to help fan smoke and to light smokebombs
2. We had a light reflector (it was huge) which really helped with pushing smoke fast. But anything with a big circumference will help.
3. When fanning, don't use a up-down continuous motion, try and only fan in a downwards motion once, then access the smoke, then gently and slowly bring the fan up again, and then fan again is a downwards motion. This helps move the smoke gently in one direction rather then fully immersing the subjects.
4. Bring wet wipes!
5. Friends should only wear clothes that they don't mind getting dirty
6. Bring a gas lighter with an extended ignite so you can light the smokebomb from afar. Also smoke holders help (can be purchased from Coloured Smoke)
7. The smokebomb releases smoke fast, so plan your poses and positions beforehand
8. It helps that your friend holds the smoke bomb and move it around the subject
9. Pick a location that is quiet and get permission from any parks beforehand.
9. My favorite colours were blue, red (pink) and orange! More dynamic.

And last of all, have fun! I think Clarissa took hundreds of shots to find a few perfect ones. She did a great job and especially within the unknown territory of Smoke Bombs - she captured the love, crazy, cheesiness and fun between us. Thank you!
