Well it depends on what kind of smoke or fog it is.

If it's white then generally it's going to bounce light and become brighter, but it's not really going to make a huge difference. It's basically just going to look smoggy on film (slightly blurry and whiter). Even then, it all depends on how thick the smoke is, how much of it there is, where it is, what background it has and what's lighting it.

What does it matter? It's not really much different to an actor wearing a white shirt.
