Therefore, professional advertisers always attracted considerable interest, not only the result of work, but also the process of its creation, behind the scenes of the industry - movies «making of» and the secrets of shooting of advertising.
The site has repeatedly appealed to the subject, revealing the secrets fudstilistov, writers of cult movies and publishing video reports of a series of «behind the scene». At this time we will focus on the effects of the bottle.
Professional photographers and directors know that special effects are not only computer. The vapor from the bottle, the web from a spray, liquid buoyancy of ice cubes and other gadgets known manufacturers (Condor and Trengove Studios) effects for film and advertising.
Fans of the maximum naturalness can be wet and warm in the microwave cotton balls. They create the illusion of steam rising from the hot food. However, technological progress in the field of special effects stepped far enough, and you can buy a set of two bottles, can get the effect of steam on any surface. To do this, apply a drop of each bag results, if they are close enough to immediately arises trickle of steam, which will hang in the air for several minutes. C using this kit is not difficult to capture light steam over a cup of coffee or to pass the effect of smoke from the extinguished wick candles.

Solve this problem can either glycerin - it looks great on the wall of glasses, and the skin of the fruit. Either drops «Drop Effect», which are applied to the surface by an applicator not dry out and do not evaporate.
Ice cubes and whole frozen blocks of advertising consist of gelatin.

Sparkling morning dew on the grass and misted bottles taken out of the refrigerator, in advertising is "the work of" aerosol "Rosa", taking pictures. Rosa spray is applied and stored for a long time, not evaporating and drying up.
The effect of crushed ice
Shooting meat and fish products on natural finely crushed ice - a rather intractable problem for the photographer. Under heat this baby rapidly loses its shape and melts. For these purposes, a special chemical composition. A teaspoon of the composition is poured onto the glass surface (or glass dish) with water. After 15 minutes, an imitation ice chips, which retains its shape for several hours or even several days.
The effect of frost, izmorozi
Packages of frozen foods, bottles taken out of the freezer and frosted, frosty clothes, face - such plots often have to take a professional photographer. These natural effects persist for a few seconds and quickly disappear under the influence of the thermal radiation of studio lighting. Craftsmen say that the usual antiperspirant deodorant spray gives a frosty coating. And that the frost on the bottle can be prepared using salts and hairsprays. However, it greatly facilitates shooting these scenes a special aerosol formulation is sprayed on the surface of the photographed objects. This frost is maintained for many hours.

In the shops of special effects you can buy a ready-made: even on closer examination it is impossible to distinguish from the present. It keeps track of, and applied through a screen creates the illusion of snow. In the winter, remove the rollers often using "snowmen" and artificial snow. Artificial snow - this paper and plastic. Huge fans usually stand behind the camera and sprayed white snowflakes in the right direction. To create a frame in the fairy tale where the light is needed, light snow, ash is commonly used.
Imitation of the frozen window stekla
Frosty pattern on glass is applied as from a container: 15 minutes to get through the elongated ice crystals resemble thin chrysanthemum petals.
Almost every horror film is present dusty cobwebs, evokes a sense of dark and dramatic scenes of mystery and horror. This web is sprayed from balonchika.
