    Stunning shots. I have never tried this. Looks like silk.
  5. Thanks. It's actually not too easy... with the AC blowing the smoke it makes it quite hard to focus on the smoke. It takes alot of patience. It's definitely woth the time and effort.

  14. So I took logan's advice and tried some post processing of my own on one of the shots from my first smoke session... it was a quick edit, only taking a couple minutes. Here's what i came out with :
