Photographing Incense Smoke Tutorial – Part 3 – Rainbow Smoke
Here is the final installment of the ‘Photographing Incense Smoke’ tutorial series. To see how to actually photograph the smoke, see Part 1 or if you want to see the single color post processing technique, see Part 2. This one is just a slight departure from Part 2, where we post processed the smoke to give it some great color. Well, in this one, we’re going to make the smoke multi-colored.
First, load up your smoke picture into photoshop and adjust the brightness, if you need to, as described in Part 2.
Simply select Layer>New Fill Layer>Gradient.
In the New Layer dialog, in the mode drop down, select Color and click Ok.
In the Gradient Editor dialog, select the Gradient Preset that you like and click Ok.
That’s it! There’s nothing to it. Enjoy!
