Currys PC World here in the UK are running a series of photography challenges. They've just started with a "Smoke photography" challenge set by David Nightingale of Chromasia blog. This all fits rather neatly with the tutorial videos I made recently on this very topic so if you want to ace that competition check out my videos below and then visit the Currys PC World blog to find out how to enter.

Part 2 of our tutorial on shooting smoke pictures shows you how to edit the pictures once you've taken them. I'm using Lightroom 4 for this tutorial but the same techniques could be applied in just about any photo editing package. I'll show you how to improve contrast and tonality, how to get a clean background and then invert the image and add vibrant colours. After that it's all down to your own creativity to see the possibilities within the picture and bring them out.
