WHY NOT TRY US­ING A SMOKE MA­CHINE OUT­DOORS

Why not cre­ate fake fog out­side to add shafts of misty sun­light to your land­scape scenes?

Fog ma­chines and smoke ma­chines aren’t only use­ful for adding at­mos­phere to in­te­ri­ors, we can also take them out­doors to cre­ate misty land­scapes. But, fog ma­chines can be ex­pen­sive, so we used a power in­verter at­tached to a car bat­tery to en­able us to plug in our main­spow­ered fog ma­chine while out in the woods.

We need to find an an­gle where the fog is back­lit by the sun while it’s low in the sky at dusk or dawn. The fog that a ma­chine like this pro­duces is very light and it dis­si­pates quickly, so it won’t be able to stand a hint of wind. As such, it’s best to try this on a still wind­less day or in a shel­tered lo­ca­tion.
