Smoke Photography (Magic Lamp)

I’ll start by saying that there are no Photoshop tricks in this image, the only adjustments were adding the two tone colour and some noise cleanup. The image is actually rotated counter clockwise 90 degrees; I just felt like the smoke created an almost magic lamp shape if I did this. I took 100’s of photographs and after going through them, I felt this one had the most interesting shape.

I have included a link to an article I found, which shows a similar setup and procedure to what I used.
