    Lit with one alienbees strobe in front with fog around. Set to tungsten white balance for the blue.

    The fog machine was on the ground camera left behind him as he was facing the strobe. I pointed it so it sprayed diagonally towards the back. It was a short spray so it had time to disappate from his feet and curl up and around to get the smoke curls.

      If you want to modify the look of your fog, try building a "fog chiller". by reducing the tempreture of the fog you are able to control it's density and thus it's look.

      fog that is properly chilled with hang on the ground in spaces with a limited amount of airflow.

      cold cement or tile floors increase this effect.

      chilled fog will create a "footstep" effect when you walk through it, which looks great.

      I have always used a tupperware container and tons of bagged ice from the gas station for this effect. tin foil also helps.

      e-mail me with any questions about building one, patricksquire+gmail.com, replace the + with the @ symbol.

      p.s. check out lifehacker for a great way to get some cheap AA batteries from a 6V lantern battery.
