Got a Michael Bay-like appetite for capturing destruction, without the matching slush fund to pay for it? Well, $50 can land you a neat bit of photographic trickery, known as Smoke Drops. Imported from Italy by the fine folks at Photojojo, combining a few drops of bottle A with bottle B creates 5 to 10 minutes of instant smoke. Use more than a few drops, and you’ll see more smoke. Practically speaking, there are probably better things to drop half a Benjamin on, but using Smoke Drops will definitely work out better than that Marlboro / kerosene plan you concocted for your Backdraft themed family portrait.
