Light One Up! by JaninesWorld

In this image I am NOT promoting smoking by any means. I thought I’d get a shot of this elderly man lighting up his cigarette and capturing the light on his face from the flame and smoke.
I personally have never smoked and it is everyones personal choice to do so.
Nikon D5000 DSLR.
Adelaide, South Australia.


Love My Nikon Camera. Have only been doing photography for about 2 years now and am totally addicted!

    It is so beautifully done, a real prize winner I think, his cigarette is so small, he would almost burn the end of his nose !

    Wonderful capture.

  • This is Lawrie Morag…you know of him. He has smoked all his life and I just had to capture the light from the flame, and it worked out well. Thank you for the lovely compliment and favs too Morag you are always supportive xxx
