1. This looked better in my head

2. I contemplated dumping this in the trash for several hours

3. This took three days, mostly because it was done late at night and I messed up the smoke the first time

4. I had to get a hair cut to take a selfie

5. My apartment smells like incense

6. I don't like the smell of incense

 

Lighting and whatnot:

1. SB24 in a 28" Apollo softbox at 24mm and I think 1/4 power, camera right and behind me

2. SB24 into a 42" shoot through umbrella at 70mm and maybe 1/4 power, camera left, high, and aimed down at my face.

3. For the smoke, two bare sb24's at some power and flagged to prevent the lighting spilling onto the background... which I forgot to do the first time...adkgla;kdg

4. The smoke is two different shots together

 

85mm f1.8 for the portrait, 50mm f1.8 for the smoke
