I am very sorry for the banal question that I have but this problem is driving me crazy...
I am trying to use some smoke and I have read in many places and books that you simply have to fill the room with smoke (some even refers to room where you can barely see with your naked eye), wait for the smoke to stop flying around and then to start shooting...
When I try to do this "effect"I always end up with a room that turns out to be completely white when lit but I use very little smoke and I try to even it out as much as I can (I am working in a small environment).
It seems like that the smoke is always either too strong or not strong enough and it doesn't last long enought in the "good phase" when you can shoot.
Moreover I always have some swirls of smoke (visible in the camera) as if it doesn't mix well with air...
I am using a normal smoke machine and on the bottle of liquid there is a "B" printed as is it is a type of liquid (I don't know if that might help).
Thank you very much for your help and sorry for the, I guess, very banal question.
