Smoke and fog brushes are a must have necessity for anyone creating composites. Download the most complete smoke and fog brush set available anywhere and set yourself apart from your competition

There are many different smoke brushes out there but nothing like this.  What inexperienced people don’t realize is that there are specific categories of smoke and fog that are each used for different things.  These categories also have an order that they are best used in to create realistic and dynamic smoke and fog.

Neutral smoke brushes help lay a foundation of smoke, wispy brushes  add character to your smoke, smoke columns are for surrounding your subjects, psychedelic smoke (very pronounced wisps) to help convey motion and movement, and billowing and drifting smoke for scenes.  The collection contains all of these categories in smartly organized bundles to allow you to quickly locate the right brush for the job plus a tutorial with tips and tricks on when and how to use, layer, and position your smoke for the coolest results.

10 Neutral Smoke Brushes

18 Smoke Wisp Brushes

17 Psychedelic Smoke Brushes

8 Smoke Column Brushes

13 Billowing and Drifting Brushes

    Can’t say enough about all of the templates and brush collections that we’ve purchased! They’ve all been easy to use and customize to each individual image and have really brought our photography to another level.

    This was the first brush I learned to use and I loved it. It makes people take a second look at your work and creates conversation between you and potential clients.

    I used them in Ben’s workshop and after creating a collage of images it was so easy to create depth of field and separation with the subjects. Another great product!

    I cannot stop using these brushes, they are addicting! They add the perfect amount of atmosphere to help blend images to perfection. If you do any kind of composites or use Photoshop in your workflow, these will be a great addition to your palette.

    Easy to use incredible brushes. I have used them in many images now and my clients are fascinated with their images and I receive further business as result of them. A conventional photo shoot can be turned into a dramatic product that is truly unique

    I have some photos with beautiful, interesting smoke in them that I’ve tried many times to extract for brushes so I could use them on other images. Mine look okay, but they are never quite as natural or real looking as the original. Ben’s smoke brushes are even better than what I was hoping to create, and the brush organization and his video tutorial make me wonder why I even wasted my time trying the DIY method. Awesome!

    It’s so fun to use these brushes not only in sports photography, but weddings as well. How fun it is to put a groom full of dramatic smoke! Love all these amazing brushes.

    I won’t lie I started off trying to use free brushes, but after getting frustrated with there quality and the flow of the free brushes just weren’t great. These brushes are amazing and have different layers to them which Ben demonstrates for you. I had a great experience with Shirk Photography, and was super impressed with how fast he got back to me when I had issues.

    I use these brushes EVERY time I create a sports montage. They are amazing. Really easy to use, and they add a tremendous amount of texture and interest to team banners and senior banners, as well as my team posters. So awesome.

    I downloaded these brushes 2 months ago and I LOVE them. They are really easy to use. I have wasted so much time finding and using inferior smoke/fog brushes. These are the best I have found and save me so much time. A must have.
