This was lit with one blue-gelled flash behind the subject to backlight the smoke and just pick out his outline. My aim was to pick out the orange tip of the cigar against the blue background and silhouette the subject to go for a slightly threatening look. This shot makes me think of Crimewatch when a person's identity is concealed. Whether he's a victim or perpetrator is anyone's guess though!

Thanks for looking,
