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.
