Rex Auer

    Newer Older

    Day 4 of the December Challenge.

    Rex is a wrestler, an aviator, a truck driver, an Indy Car racer, an artist, and many more things -- plus he's my son. He likes to show off his "muscles" when wearing his Blue Demon Lucha Libre mask (which actually came from Monterrey), so we played around with the wireless flash to throw some shadows.

    You can also see this photo on my December Challenge blog entry.

    I also used this photo in another article titled "16 Inspirational Portrait Photography Techniques" -- so check that out too.

    visualdensity, Curtis Joe Walker, and 44 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Brian,
      Great shot. It takes courage to go into something as committing as photo a day. I love the bottom up lighting here.
