This is an amazing photo. For me it captures the hard working blue collar man. Simply beautiful!

Very good work! Love the smoke trailing up, the light looks good reflected on his hands and how they are placed. Good feeling from this one.

Thank you very much!

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at my room.
Time
It was night.
Lighting
The light from the left comes from a normal lamp. The main light is from the lighter.
Equipment
My camera is a Nikon D5100 and the 35mm 1.8G Nikkor lens. No flash was used
Inspiration
I think I was probably inspired by some 90's cigarettes commercials with western influences.
Editing
I used gradiend filters to lighten the hat and the hands and most importanly I made the white balance cooler than the original in order to achieve a more "winter" feeling.
In my camera bag
I have my Nikon D5100 along with the kit lens 18-55mm plus the 35mm 1.8G and a manual 50mm 1.4E. All nikkor.
Feedback
I think that when it comes to "smoking-photos", the smoke must be one of the basic elements. So a good light to pop out the smoke is needed, maybe a backlight or anything, depending on the situation. Beard and hat are optional, but it all about character...
