Smoke Bomb and Lifestyle Portrait | Alegre Sisters

Alegre Sisters

The Alegre sisters have been great models in front of the camera. I’ve contacted them every time I’ve gotten some photoshoot ideas.  This time I wanted to utilize a smoke bomb and they agreed to my vision. Thank you so much, Marah, Flo, and Jean! I had the best time with all of you and this session turned out great! :)

Smoke Bomb Tips

I ordered smoke bombs through Amazon.com and got a random 6-color package. I couldn’t pick the colors, so I ended up getting white, orange, purple, yellow, and 2 greens.  There are several kinds of smoke bombs but I made a mistake! I didn’t realize I ordered the ones that smoke comes out from both ends! The smoke lasted less than 30 seconds which I wasn’t expecting. It was way too short!! If you ever try a smoke bomb shoot, please make sure to get the ones that smoke comes out from only one end. The smoke will last longer! Let me know if you need help.

Smoke Bomb & Lifestyle Portrait

I chose smoke bombs for my creative photoshoot because I needed my favorite colors in my portfolio. My spirit colors are red and navy blue (which I didn’t get either red or blue smoke bombs and I was so sad!) Even though the smoke bombs lasted less than 30 seconds, the Alegre sisters did a great job and I achieved what I was looking for. Smoke gave those images a mysterious and interesting look! I loved our shoot!! :)
