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

No more foggy studios…since using these brushes, I’ve saved myself TIME and hassle waiting for the fog machine-SO easy to use, love how you can change colors and control the placement of fog. This is a MUST HAVE for sports photographers especially!!

These will take your composites to the next level!!!
Jeremy Jones – December 11, 2017
I use this brush set extensively not just in my portrait composites, but also in my landscape photography. It is great for early-morning river/lake photos where a touch of fog just enhances and completes the image.
BrendaTom – November 26, 2017
This was my first purchase and I’m so excited to start working with these awesome brushes!!!

Another great set of brushes. These fog and smoke brushes integrate smoothly with the templates!
Amanda – November 21, 2017
I combine these with the powder brushes and they work so well together, I actually use these brushes a lot with animal photos..:)
Tom – November 20, 2017
Instant wow! Create mood or effects. Use them behind your image to separate them from the back ground. Use them on your image for amazing effects, or just use them to create fog or smoke. These brushes work well with the other brush sets to create water mist, powder dust, or smoke off of fire. A very useful tool.
ricklaw.photography – November 20, 2017
This is my first brush set from Ben Shirk, and I’m seriously in awe. These are going to be serious game-changers for my work!
aleslie – November 16, 2017
I would be lost without Ben’s brushes, they are very realistic looking and soooo versatile…they NEVER disappoint…can’t say enough positive things about these brush sets.
Abby Soliz Vasara – November 13, 2017
Just what we needed to add that extra BOOM to our projects!!
Tyler Davis – November 2, 2017
Very useful brush set, extremely useful for blending composites. Couldn’t live without it, it’s a “must have”.
James – October 30, 2017
I have tried to add smoke/fog to images for quite a while and have never been that happy with the results. These brushes really help. In addition to the brushes themselves, the short video that comes with them on how to use them is super helpful.
Todd Bielby – September 18, 2017
These work great for senior pictures. The parents just love them.
shutterleaf – September 6, 2017
Perfect addition to my dancing and gymnastics portraits! I love how easy they are manipulated.
Kari Layland – August 24, 2017
I use these all the time! They are a perfect way to add personality to my images and to help blend composites for a realistic look. Definitely worth it!

Just got these and just realized HOW MUCH potential there is here! Super excited.
Felipe – July 19, 2017
The smoke and fog brushes are great! You can do whatever you can think of to them and they look amazing. Color, depth, and bringing your composite together is just the beginning!
gustavo – July 16, 2017
Saw a friend use these while on a video conference with him as we discussed retouching. I had to have them. Amazing.
Nichole Hufford – July 11, 2017
anthony – February 26, 2017
Amazing product. I’ve almost purchased all of the effects offered. And well worth every penny. Don’t get left in the SMOKE.
A – February 10, 2017
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.
Kate Brown Treick – February 9, 2017
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.
Michael – January 26, 2017
Smoke & Fog added the mood and feeling I was looking for in certain images; this is a great tool to have handy in your repertoire.
Ann Smith – December 6, 2016
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.
Stephen Seifried – December 5, 2016
This brushes have endless possibilities. I use them regularly with all my posters. The seniors love them and sport teams as well.
Jeremy – December 5, 2016
this is my go to set, trust I own all of Bens brushes, this set always allows me to create an atmosphere in most of my sports composite works, so incredibly easy to use and manipulate to create multiple effects.
Ron – December 3, 2016
These brushes are like candy for Photoshop, I cant stop using them.
Murray Sielski – November 28, 2016
This brush collection is worth every penny. It is a new part of our foundation to make composite images and it quickly became an indispensable tool.
Randy Jackson – November 28, 2016
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.
Marty – November 25, 2016
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!
Cindy Shaver – November 22, 2016
Love love love. These brushes are amazing! I’m having so much fun using them in my senior sport Banners!
Kentley – November 7, 2016
Great set of brushes!! Saves a lot of time. Let your creativity flow.
Geoff Tootell – August 17, 2016
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
Cindy Schultz – June 19, 2016
The smoke and fog brushes are unbelievably realistic! So fun to play and create with them!
Sarah Dittman – May 6, 2016
These are amazing brushes! One of my favorite! They definitely add an amazing touch to the pictures!
Michael Anderson – April 25, 2016
I’m using these in conjunction with the Water Couture brushes and the Fire Collection to create some incredible effects on my images. Thank you Ben, for giving me a new creative spark in my studio!
Amanda Davis – March 28, 2016
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.
jen464676 – March 26, 2016
I can not wait for the Senior Photography season to heat up so I can use these new brushes!
Robert Leavitt – March 25, 2016
Another great review for a great product. Very easy to use and gives an additional element to our images. Great product…sure I will be purchasing more brushes.
Pam Kastner – March 11, 2016
Great addition to anyone’s work, takes it to the next level.
Charlene Chavez – March 4, 2016
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!
Adrienne Angelo Griffin – March 2, 2016
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.
Terry Larson – February 25, 2016
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.
