I enjoy the smoke coming from the cig and the dramatic lighting! What's the story behind this image and what kind of lighting set up did you use?!

This is a pretty simple set-up. Large soft box to 45? to the front, to light the face and suit, then a gridded light at a sharper angle behind and masked from the camera. Balanced them using the power selectors on each head and crossed my fingers as this was shot on an old Hasselblad 501cm on film! None of the instant feedback of digital. Way more exciting!!
