How to capture smoke

For my fluid project, I have to test our model on gas flows, besides water waves. I first started searching at flickr, and it turned out that I was right. There are hundreds of image about smoke, they are really amazing and pieces of art. Then I began to think about how to capture these smoke images. I had a rough idea but still didn’t know how to start, and what equipments do I need. Finally, I found this article. It not only teaches you how to set up the environment, but also offers some techniques to process the raw images in photoshop.
