Your 'normal' room lighting looks pretty good.
Halogen, I guess ?
Or maybe LED.

Nope, just the original lighting for the room. I plan on replacing it with a cluster of canned lighting.
The original shots were very yellow-tined. I corrected that on the computer. That, and cropping, is all I did.
For the article shots, I'm going to take a thin dowel, cover it in cotton in a comical shape, put some grey highlights, and during the long exposures I'll place it directly over the stack and rotate/bounce it for several seconds then remove it.
If the effects I got with a wadded paper towel worked out as good as they did, cotton in the right shape should really look good (and it'll cast shadows like real smoke will)...
