A friend of mine who likes smoking cigars, filthy habit, but I saw potential for a good shot out of it. ;)

Thanks. I saw the shot in my head a couple of weeks before when he was smoking in a bar, and was pretty stoked when it came out just as I visualised it.

very cool shot and even more so that you can duplicate what you saw in your mind, I so wish I could do that!

I love it! I find the most interesting part to be the fact that the smoke doesn't have a shadow, but is seen over the head's shadow!

Awesome "blue tone" as well! Wonderful job!


He still has one more move.

The shadow on the wall is inspired by a couple of things. Firstly the people on this site who are zealots for having the flash directly above the camera to avoid background shadows. But also from a portrait course I did that showed some old Hollywood shots with very sharp background shadows that looked really dramatic.

The blue tone was inspired by an accident. I did a print without running it through the correct printer profile, looked at it and went "Bugger, got a blue cast" quickly followed by "Hey, that looks cool, I should do that on purpose". :)
