Where there’s smoke, there must be cameras

smoke There is a great website called Sensitive Light that has a complete gallery of amazing smoke images. They are just wonderful abstracts that are completely mesmerizing to look at. There is even a Flickr group devoted to the art of smoke photography (not that anyone would be surprised by that since I think there is a Flickr group for almost every conceivable photographic concept). Well, over at the Photocritic.Org site there is a great tutorial on how these images are created and how to process them in Photoshop to achieve the colored smoke effects. Don’t be surprised to see some variation of this concept here in the next few weeks.

    Very cool, must try also, this week of no light is motivating me to set up the studio.

  2. Hi Jeff,

    Just stumbled on this post. Unfortunately the links to SensitiveLight and Photocritic.org are no longer active. Getting a 404 error on all of them.
    I know this is an old post, but if you want to update it, I’ve found another brilliant tutorial you can link to: https://www.jhoque.com/how-to-photograph-smoke/
    It actually covers photographing and editing in one post.
    Hope it helps. 🙂
