A Portrait in Darkness

Newer Older

Had a great 20 minute session with a friend tonight and got some great photos out of it. Processed using my Simply Black & White lightroom preset (get it here: mcgstudios.ca/presets.html).

Strobist: SB-24 on 1/16 power, low and camera left into a shoot through umbrella. Triggered with my new Elinchrom Skyports

    This is outstanding photograph! Love the lighting, the way it projects on the forehead, nose and cheeks. Black background complements the overall expression! Fantastic!!! 10 out of 10? No, it is 12!!!
