Lit with:
580EX (honeycomb snoot) @ 1/2 , 45 deg behind subject camera left
430EXII (flagged) 1/64, 45 deg camera right
The little black bit in the foreground is from the top of the match when it caught alight, I was going to crop it out but I liked it's smoke trail :) (5 years and 1848 days ago)

No problems I under exposed the ambient light using my camera settings and it was the flash that lit the suject. I placed one behind with the snoot to make the smoke stand out. The background is actually the white tiles on my laundry wall but I have underexposed dramatically to turn them black. The flagged flash stops the light from spilling onto the background. I used my 100mm macro lens, 1/200 sec @ f10. Then for post all I had to do was in Lightroom 3, an adjustment to the blacks to make the background darker and added some luminance to the blues. Hope that is more helpful
