Sword 2

The usual 3 Strobe setup. Two striplights left and right and one octabox up aimed down at the subject.

    Awesome lighting, great work !

    Perfect lighting and angle. I love how well the sword caught the light. I did one of these as a self portrait, once, and it's a pain to get the sword lined up perfectly for the camera angle. :)

    Can you detail your post on this? Specifically how you made his body darker without losing much detail?

    Thanks everybody :)

    @Kevingeary: I aimed the Octobox a bit higher than normal to get a fall off on the body. I then used a low/high pass technique in photoshop which lets me recover all the detail back from the slightly darker areas in the picture.
