Greetings Sir Deakins, 

One of the most challenging aspect that I have faced so far is incorporating smoke into shots, I was wondering what is your approach to using smoke machines in your shots, and how often do you use it? Would love any insights into this. 

Thank you in advance!

I am quite cautious when using smoke. If you are shooting a period film it might make sense but so often it can make a scene look unreal. As I so often say, less is more!

Thank you, that makes sense! I was wondering if you used any in the interior scenes of prisoners and blade runner?
