A Nikon SB-28 attached to a Manfrotto Justin Clamp wich was clamped to the top of the stop sign, just out of frame. It created the separation light hitting colin's back, shoulders and arms.

 

Next another SB-28 on a 5 foot light stand just of of camera right created the key light hitting his right front side, and illuminating the bushes.

 

Finally the real trick to this set-up is the additional SB-28 that really dosen't look like another light source. It's placed on a extra low light stand, dialed -2 stops, pointed up at his body to fill in the shadows created by cross-lighting him.

 

The image was expoosed for 1/60 of a second thru a Nikkor 50mm at f3.5 captured as a .NEF file by a Nikon D300s set at ISO 200, with a white balance of 6,000 degrees.

 

Minor corrections to exposure and color cast were made in Adobe Camera RAW, sharpening was added in Adobe Photoshop CS4.

 

Cheers.
