    I was surprised, for my first time trying this they didn't come out too badly. Still need to get less noise in the pics.

    What tips do you guys have for me, I know there is an insane amount of noise, will have to turn down the ISO, but any other tips or tricks that you guys use to shoot smoke?

    Here is my favorite one that I did:

    I am posting it because I wanted to exhibit my tip, which is try to selectively color your photo so that it looks like something. Then it won't look like just colored smoke anymore, but maybe something entirely different, if you're lucky!

    Do you know where some tutorials to do this are? I have one that I really want to do different colors on (as seen below), but everything I tried hasn't worked so well. Thanks!

    just copy the layer several times, saturate different layers in different colors, and then mask them off. If you don't know how to do that stuff, then try to find basic photoshop tutorials.
