How do I haze an EXT?

Recommended Posts

When shooting a NIGHT EXT Wide, how should I best go about hazing it to show the light sources?

 

And also, what's the process if I wanted to haze a DAY EXT Wide?

 

Thank you!

The usual method is smoke, however, depending on the area you may need one or more of the larger machines. The problem outside is the wind, which can disperse the smoke pretty quickly, so that you've only get moments to get the shot.

One method is to use a long layflat tube and blower to disperse continuous hazer smoke from upwind. You may have for example 100meters of 4" .250 gauge layflat tube with a small perforation every 1 meter or so.

 

With proper hazer and large canister of fliid you can get continuous smoke for many hours with only minor adjustments

no problem :)

I use this type on inline blower to feed the tube: https://www.ebay.com/p/SEAFLO-Boat-Inline-Bilge-Blower-Fan-12v-270-CFM-Marine-Galley-Engine-Ventilation/1893307943?iid=131968020196&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D53209%26meid%3D76759ff55e1d45568334447f69eb2a5a%26pid%3D100623%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26mehot%3Dag%26sd%3D123172426273%26itm%3D131968020196&_trksid=p2047675.c100623.m-1

 

layflat tube type, I have 4" and 5" 250gauge in use: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Layflat-polythene-poly-tubing-tube-ALL-SIZES-QTYS-clear-250-GAUGE-336M-roll/262028210987?hash=item3d0219332b%3Am%3AmIaGX8_U0aGEU0F4szYZFkQ&var=560817393903&_sacat=0&_nkw=layflat+tube+250gauge&

my hazer is about 800w but you may want to use larger if you have any wind there. you can made a temporary "tube" to feed the smoke from hazer outlet to the blower by using cinefoil or cardboard box etc.

If needed you can also use larger blower and distribute the smoke from it to multiple layflat tubes going to different directions.

 

The layflat tube easily catches mold after use and you may need to throw it away after use (may not be good idea to store it for long after use) , you need to take this into account when calculating how much tube you need to order
