Smoking is absolutely injurious to health and could cause serious damage to our respiratory tract and organs when done for a prolonged period of time. Having said that, the other part of smoking is all about the boast for attitude, the style and courage of someone who does it. The Nicotine in there travels faster to your brain and gives a temporary relaxation and stress relief. Personally i don’t smoke, but there must be this wonderful zone of comfort with every puff and above all they do make fantastic photographs. Patterns of smoke hissing all around and the sensual comfort in every single characters face is more than evident.
Shooting smoke is one of the hardest part in sense of lighting. Its always better to have a dull dark background to highlight the bright smoke from the cigar. Try out slow shutter speed which would definitely give you fantastic results too. Good Luck and No Smoking!
