Superb shapes! Love the rainbow colors of the first 3 and would love to see the last one with 2 stronger colors (did you use 2 incense sticks for that one?) :) Great job!

Thanks for commenting Bea
In the first three the colour is there and its just saturated and made more vibrant in pp , in the last its just one incense stick but the incense burned with a different tone to the wooden stick its coated on (I pick up all different types while out and about and they burn differently) so when shot it was lit with a diffused white light and had bluey white tone and brownish tones to the smoke which hue and sat adjustments in pp , the colouring is pretty subtle because it gets a bit dirty ? if I overdo it.
Regards
John

Wow I have never seen shots like that before. How do you get the smoke to appear colored?

Hi Ben
I "borrowed" some thoughts from TMR design , he used many small coloured gels in a patchwork design to light backgrounds and it seemed to me it would look cool on the smoke.

Excellent photos - love 1 + 3 for colour and the twirl on no 4 is great

So if i read this thread correct (and the linked thread) you made up a mosaic gel sheet as per TMR and used that with your flash? hopefully i have interpreted the treads correctly. any how what ever you did has excellent results.

Hi
The colour in the first 3 is done by putting coloured gels in front of the flash which lights the smoke , in the last the natural tints of the smoke when shot with a diffused white flash are altered in post processing by adjusting the hues and saturation.
hope this helps
Regards
John

Hi Andy
Thanks for the comments & yes you got it , as well as the mosaics made up from the gel swatches ,Ive bought coloured gel sheets and cut them as desired some of the colours show up more dust particles than others and they can be a pain to remove , the patchwork of gel I clamp on the front of barndoors and I found using a grid cuts down on stray dust and smoke that may be in the room.
Best wishes
John

Lovely!

Have you tried putting them through NeatImage? It would really work for this kind of shot; moving away fron the grittiness and smoothing them down.

Hi Ben
I do filter about half of the to take away the grittynees , some I just prefer with the noise/grit it seems to make them more dimensional as the colours fade more gradually if that makes sense ? some look awesome heavilly filtered and with the contrast upped .
best wishes
John
