Thanks for all your comments and edits guys, much appreciated.

Jaki - I used aperture priorityF2.8, which meant a 1/4 shutter speed.

Here's my new edit, based on trying to keep a lot of dead space in the picture, but taking in Dustin's suggestion. I think I prefer the longer smoke in Scot's and Rhino's, though.


EDIT - sorry, posted the wrong photo!

scot- is that an e.s. in your smoke? i happen to like that one best, though the others work pretty nicely as well.

I love the shot but the glow from the cigarette looks too artifical to me.

Thanks for your comments Captal. It's actually the original glowof the cigarette - I effectively removed the B&W layer at that point. I know what you mean, though, but the picture doesn't seem to be as 'impacting' with a B&W glow.

Cheers.

Agreed- a B&W glow wouldn't be as impacting.

Any way to tone it down? Or you could always take the picture when he isn't inhaling :lol:


Which brings me to a point- wouldn't there be a lack of smoke if he is inhaling?

Yes there would, which is why the smoke on my edit starts further away from the cigarette. I tried to make it so that it looked as if he had only just started inhaling, hence the remnants of smoke above. Whether it worked or not, I'm not sure.
