Coloring Smoke

Yesterday I posted an article (Photographing Smoke) about taking pictures of smoke. This article will explain how to add color to your smoke pictures. This was the picture I ended with yesterday:

1. Open your picture file in Photoshop (or a similar program).
2. Create a new layer.
3. Use the brush tool to paint colors over your smoke in a new layer (color can be applied in other ways too; try using the gradient tool to fade from one color to another).

4. Apply a Gaussian Blur to your color layer (to blend the colors together).

5. Set the color layer's blend mode to Color (you can also try Soft Light, Overlay, or any other mode for a variety of color styles).

Feel free to experiment with combinations of colors, coloring techniques, and blend modes. And try inverting the final product. Here are some of mine:

The above is inverted without adding color.

The above is using a circular rainbow gradient.

Again, you can see the rest of my Smoke set on
