Couple questions:

1. What lens is he using?

2. What size bulb is the one that is directly on the smoke?

Looks interesting, curious on how this worked out for general photographers. AKA - the hobbyist! :whistle:

I tried this last night and my camera was not picking up the smoke. I think I might need to get a brighter bulb. I'm going to try this again later this weekend.

Brighter bulb? The lamp should only be used for focussing. It's the cameras own flash that illuminates the smoke.

I've done some smoke photography before, but never a set up like this. I should try it out this way, I would probably have better photos. :)
