Pho­tog­ra­phers have lugged fog ma­chines, dab­bled in py­rotech­nics, and ex­per­i­mented with dry ice in pur­suit of cap­tur­ing streams of di­rec­tional light in their im­ages. But with a new aerosol prod­uct brought into New Zealand for the first time, it’s now just a mat­ter of pop­ping a can in with your equip­ment to add a moody at­mos­phere to shots, no mat­ter where you end up. The easy-to-use At­mos­phere Aerosol comes in an aerosol con­tainer, and it can be spritzed into your shot with lit­tle fuss. Be­ing smaller than a typ­i­cal 70–200mm lens, it’ll fit in your cam­era bag.

Sim­ply shake the can, spray it into a room or still area for at least 20 sec­onds, and then cap­ture your photography. The haze will linger, and you can re­spray as re­quired. One eight-ounce can holds about as much as a can of hair­spray, and it will spray con­tin­u­ously for about five and a half min­utes. In an en­vi­ron­ment with no wind or air flow, it will hang around for hours — and bet­ter yet, it’s safe, non-toxic, and clear.

Check out at­mo­sphere­anz., or find it on In­sta­gram (@at­mosanz), for ex­am­ples of how At­mos­phere Aerosol can en­hance your im­ages. You can also find At­mos­phere Aerosol at Auck­land Cam­era Cen­tre, Progear Pho­to­graph­ics Auck­land, and Snap­shot Hamil­ton — or ask your favourite photography sup­plies out­let to stock it.
