They wanted half of their faces to look old. I think it looks pretty horrific. Kind of like a burn victim a bit as well.
Shot at Spindle Studios (using Patrick's D300).
Info: Shot in studio with a Travlite 375 (triggered with wireless remote) with a 16"x48" soft box. I had the top of the soft box close to the subject (at a 45 degree angle with the closest edge being 6" from the subjects face) with two barn doors clipped together that hung from the top of the soft box to shield the light from hitting his face.
