Pipe Dreamer

By chase
Another of Richard with his pipe...duly lit this time.
Obviously dreaming of being somewhere other than in my home studio Wink

One softbox turned right down,triflector dropping a touch of reflected light back onto the opposite side of his face.

I think the smoke from his pipe is the finishing touch to this one too.

Thanks for taking the time to call in.

Quite different from last night's with
dark side on right being very effective.
Also the upward glance tonight is appealing.
The pipe is great and just enough smoke which looks real
as it sems to be easy to add smoke these days.
