Self portrait

one of the toughest self portrait i took. I have this shot in mind without the bottom light, then i went on floor with lights. I have 2 Elinchrom 200 lights but still it doesnt give this kind of directional light, so i made a  large snoot with black chart for 2 lights. I closed every possible natural light coming in by doors and windows. This directional light will show off only in black background so pasted my black cloth in the wall. Finally with some smokes took this one. Bottom light is my speedlite which i added at last just to check but then i felt it adds something to the photograph so i kept it. And there is a remote in my hand which i cropped :)
