How to eliminate background of an image while Maintaining semi-transparent mid-ground.

Feb 11, 2014 6:09 PM

Sorry if the topic name is slightly inaccurate or if my question seems amaturish, I'm fairly new to using PS. For a project I would like to delete the black background of this image http://calibermag.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/2534069-Action-Bronso n-617.jpg and replace it with another background, however I would like to keep the smoke that's lingering over the background. Are there any techniques or tools I could use to delete the background and the black behind the smoke without directly effecting the smoke?
